Precise count of social media platforms not possible: Ministry

#NewDelhiWhile admitting that keeping precise count of social media platforms is not possible, the Central government said that all significant social media intermediaries are complying with the concerned IT rules.The cyberspace is virtual and borderless where any online intermediary can operate from anywhere in the world. All social media platforms are Internet intermediaries, of which a large number are accessible in India. Keeping a precise count is not possible, said minister of state, electronics and IT Rajeev Chandrashekhar (in pic) in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha on Friday.Compliance of social media intermediaries to the ‘IT Rules 2021’ is tracked by the government as and when reported by the users alone. For significant social media intermediaries (SSMIs), the government tracks their compliance with the IT Rules, 2021. All the SSMIs are in compliance with rule 4(1) (d) of the IT Rules, 2021, as of today, informed the minister.
