In a new study, a large and growing number of Indian women are finding themselves the victims of social censoring.
In a survey of women in India, nearly half of the respondents reported that they were blocked by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.
A survey conducted by GfK for the World Bank and the National Institute of Information Technology in India found that, in a survey conducted in the third quarter of 2016, women reported experiencing the most harassment on social media in their lives.
The survey also found that women experienced a range of negative consequences of social censorship.
More than 70% of the women surveyed said they had experienced harassment on the internet in the past year.
In one instance, a young girl was denied entry to a restaurant because she was not wearing a hijab, according to the report.
The other incidents in which women reported being blocked on social platforms include: · Being blocked from accessing certain types of media and websites.
· Being prevented from commenting or participating in discussions on social networks.
· Having their personal information published online, such as names and addresses.
· Not being allowed to view content on Facebook and Twitter.
· Disconnecting from friends and family.
The research also found many of these issues were triggered by social media bullying.
The researchers also found a significant increase in the number of women using online dating sites in the last three years.
According to the study, the use of online dating services by Indian women increased from 5% to 11% between 2015 and 2016.
The study also found there were more women using these services than ever before.
However, in some instances, the number was even higher than 10%.
