Mohammad Sadegh Afrasiabi, one member of the Iranian government’s net filtering committee, believes Social Networks websites like Facebook and Twitter became very important for Iran’s society.
“Some people try to make friend and relationship in these websites. Some other thinks these networks are best place for obtaining the latest news. But another group considers them as a new plot of Western countries against Iran targeting their culture and Islam.” Mohammad Sadegh Afrasiabi said.
Afrasiabi says these websites are full of threats and opportunities. “All the organizations must identify the opportunities and threats of social network websites and make people familiar with them.”
“According to the latest surveys 20% of female users and 10% of male users inspire their dress style from other users in these websites.” Mohammad Sadegh Afrasiabi said.
Its noteworthy that most of the foreign social network websites including but not limited to Facebook and Twitter are officially blocked in Iran. But millions of Iranians are using them daily.
