The Irish people have been asked by the Government to find out how to get around its new social networking rules.
The new social media laws, which are expected to be published in the coming weeks, have prompted a flurry of activity on Facebook and other social media platforms.
The Government is now asking users to find ways to get round the new rules, which require Facebook to allow users to share their location and other personal information in the form of a link or by asking the user to share it.
The Irish Times understands that some users have already found ways around the new restrictions, using the services of social media companies, or have tried to circumvent them by using software that allows users to circumvent the rules.
Online companies, such as Facebook, have been able to find loopholes in the new regulations to allow them to sell users’ personal information.
But the Government is concerned about the impact of the new social security rules on business.
In the coming days, the Government will publish the Government’s advice on how to deal with the issue.
