SOCIAL MEDIA REGULATIONS PUT INTO EFFECT IN TURKEY

For a long time, the place, and limits of social media in the legal order have been the subject of discussion in many countries. In Turkey, it is seen that the regulations regarding social media and the Internet Broadcasts, in general, have started with the law numbered 5651 titled ‘Regulation of Publications on the Internet and Combating Crimes Committed By Means of Such Publication’. The Law has been amended many times so far; but the last amendment was published on the Official Gazette on 31 July 2020, and it is highly important since it involves noticeable changes and further additions such as definition of Social Network Providers.
