Daily Pakistan: Facebook Turns Down Pakistan Request to Link New Accounts With Phone Numbers. “Facebook has refused to comply with Pakistan’s request to link new Facebook accounts with phone numbers citing issue of users’ rights, according to reports in US media. Voice of America (VOA) reported on Saturday that Pakistan had made the request when Facebook Vice President Joel Kaplan met with Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan last week. The purpose of the request was to curb the usage of fake profiles to post blasphemous content and make it easy for authorities to trace users.”
