Facebook on Thursday said some of its services were being restricted in Myanmar.”We are aware that access to Facebook is currently disrupted for some people,” a company spokesperson told AFP. 
“We urge authorities to restore connectivity so that people in Myanmar can communicate with their families and friends and access important information.”
