In 2011, UN recognized Internet access as a human right. In particular, it was mentioned that states have to

respect online anonymity, adopt privacy and data protection laws, and to decriminalize defamation…

ensure that Internet access is maintained at all times, including during times of political unrest.

Well, I would like to add that you also have a right to not access the Internet. Especially if Internet for you is limited by Facebook, where online anonymity is not respected.

Nobody will punish you, fine you, or pursue you for that. May be some people will be offended, but, most likely, no one will notice your absence.


FAA - Federal Aviaton Administration, which defines US air traffic rules, in November 2013 revised limitations of use of personal electronics in the air. Which means that in USA passengers do not have to turn off their devices any more during take off or landing.

I would like to add, that even if you aren’t in the airplane, it is safe to use “airplane mode” of your device. You won’t be a reason of any accident: airplanes won’t fall, trains won’t leave their lines, ships won’t sink, and satellites won’t be invaded by aliens because of you.

Know your rights! You have a right for airplane mode!
