    The increasing use of social media by governments to manipulate elections and monitor citizens has resulted in a decline in global internet freedom for a ninth consecutive year, according to an annual assessment by the Washington, D.C., think tank Freedom House.

    The "Freedom on the Net 2019" report found that governments in 26 countries manipulated national elections over the past year through tactics such as disinformation, blocking websites and cutting off access to the internet.

    Many governments are finding that on social media, propaganda works better than censorship," said Mike Abramowitz, president of Freedom House. "Authoritarians and populists around the globe are exploiting both human nature and computer algorithms to conquer the ballot box, running roughshod over rules designed to ensure free and fair elections."

    "Freedom on the Net 2019" assesses internet freedom in 65 countries that account for 87 percent of internet users worldwide.
