Emerging and Developing Nations Want Internet Freedom (stats via Mashable)

Emerging and Developing Nations Want Internet Freedom.

According to a new report from Pew Research Center, data shows that people in emerging nations around the world want freedom on the Internet. Youth are especially opposed to censorship. The following chart, created by Statista, shows 24 countries with emerging or developing economies, and the percentage of people in each who stress the importance of uncensored Internet. Pew conducted 21,847 face-to-face interviews in 2013 to compile this data. It’s interesting to note that in Venezuela, which has seen intense and sometimes violentdemonstrations against the government over the past several weeks, 89% of participants advocated for Internet freedom.
