Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. are all banned

If you're going to be a reporter at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games, don't even think about using your smartphone to post photos on social networks. 

According to a new report from The Atlantic Wire, reporters at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games this February are banned from using their smartphones to post photos to Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Vine or Facebook.

The consequence for breaking this rule is steep: loss of media access.


Yes, reporters who post photos on social apps in real time will lose accreditation for the event. Vasily Konov, the state-run RIA's top sports journalist, made this very clear. 

Only photographers with special passes and proper equipment, like D-SLR and digital video cameras, will be able to cover the Olympic events. 

While the most recent 2012 Summer Olympics in London had similar rules, many find it odd that Russia is implementing such a harsh consequence.
