Iran Culture Minister Wants Social Media Ban Lifted

 For the first time in decades,  a senior Iranian official has publicly declared that bans on social media inside Iran should be lifted.  Although the Culture Minister does not have control over internet inside Iran,  his statement is important and may lead to changes.  Several Iranian officials including Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham have Facebook (FB) or Twitter accounts, or both….  About 2 million Iranians have Facebook accounts, half of them in the capital, Tehran.”
