The Minister of Communications and Information Technology has written a post on his page on Instagram, commenting about new social networks. On the one hand, he claims, social networks have affected people’s daily activities, making inroads into the private and social lives of a large number of users. On the other hand, it is impossible, and impractical, to close down or limit social networks, due to their advantages and multifunctional uses in public life.
For these reasons, the “Government of Hope and Prudence” [the slogan of President Rouhani’s government] is determined to promote social networks instead of shutting them down or limiting them, said the Minister.
Mr. Vaezi added that, by preparing the ground for experts in this field, and by supporting local products, we can make functional domestic networks available for the use of the general public, providing them with the same services which are currently rendered by foreign service providers.
