May be it is going to be another way of Internet Censorship. It mns nobody can share their thoughts through Social Media like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc. and if you write anything against your government in this Social Media, you will get punishment because of it. Is it the way to make Bangladesh Digital? No, My sense says it hampers Our internet users to share their own thoughts. Why our government isn't giving us a National Status Book of Bangladesh? Here we will find more than 1000 status, when we have to share what status their will be marked it with proper dated! Isn't it a sy way to make Bangladesh Digital Governments own way. Then one day Facebook will change their words by "What's on Government's mind?" from ''What's on your mind''
