Ever since internet was introduced in Thailand,
the government had been doing internet censorship by blocking some websites and blogs for varied reasons. Earlier it blocked mainly pornographic websites and in the later years, it blocked websites which were supposed to cause threat to national security and those containing offensive political content. Thailand, a country having parliamentary monarchy takes publishing content against it as a serious offense. The government has since then blocked thousands of websites for violation of various rules. In 2011, it requested Facebook to remove more than 10,000 pages because of the inappropriate contents in them.
