Qandeel Baloch Facebook and Twitter account has been deleted


KARACHI: Pakistan’s social media sensation Qandeel Baloch, who was murdered by her brother last week, has been edited out from her social media handles.

Her official Facebook page, containing her photos and videos, is no longer available, and her account on Instagram, also owned by Facebook, has been deleted.

As per Facebook policy, any account which belongs to a deceased individual is automatically made into a memorialised account where friends and family can share memories on the timeline. However, according to Facebook’s help centre, “pages with a sole admin whose account was memorialised will be removed from Facebook if we receive a valid request.”
