Only Russia’s VKontakte has set up a representative according to the new law and Turkey fines all major platforms…

I am surprised that even Tiktok did not comply with the new law. Let’s see what happens next…

 

Turkey fines Facebook, others over new social media law

Turkey on Nov. 4 fined Facebook, Twitter and three other social media companies for failing to appoint a country representative under a controversial law which came into force last month.

No social media platform other than Russia’s VKontakte has set up local office in Turkey, says expert

 

No social media platform other than Russian social site Vkontakte has so far appointed a local representative in Turkey, leading cyber rights expert Yaman Akdeniz said on Nov. 2.

“The deadline for social network providers to open a representative office [in Turkey] expired today. Let’s evaluate what will happen. I start with a new piece of news: Russian social media platform VK – VKontakte has appointed a legal representative in Turkey. Other than that, there is no other [platform] that has appointed a representative,” Akdeniz wrote on Twitter.
