Facebook Deletes North Korea Account But It Resurfaces

North Korea got its own Facebook account, but within hours of it going live, Facebook shut down the page. The page was made to spread North Korean sentiment against South Korea and the United States, and to spread North Korean propaganda within the country. The account was deleted by the social networking site but a new one has sprung up already.

The original group was made by a group called, Uriminzokkiri and while the servers are based out of China, the main operation took place out of Pyonyang, the capital of North Korea.
