A global study titled ‘Freedom On The Net 2011,’ conducted by a US-based organization with help from the United Nations Democratic Fund, have ranked Nigeria 13th out of 37 countries.

The report talks of a Chinese woman who was sent to a labour camp over a satirical Twittermessage, the arrest of an 18-year-old Iranian who blogged about women’s rights and a 19-year old Tibetan who was detained for looking at online photographs of the Dalai Lama.
