France Bans Mention of Facebook and Twitter

Starting May 27th, radio and television stations in France will no longer be allowed to use the names of the social networking sites in their broadcasts. The reason is a 1992 law that bans promotion of business enterprises on network television programs. Any mention of “follow us on Twitter” or “visit our Facebook page,” in the eyes of the French government, represents advertising and promotion of those sites. Reporters are still allowed to mention the sites by name if the news story itself concerns one of the businesses, but referring to Facebook or Twitter in a promotional capacity will not be allowed.

There's still no word on how the law will be enforced or what the penalties will be. Follow me on f***b*** for more information…
