No For­eign So­cial Me­dia in Schools

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

ILNA* - Min­istry of ed­u­ca­tion banned the use of for­eign so­cial me­dia net­works in schools, amid a push by Tehran to limit the in­flu­ence of out­side on­line plat­forms.

Schools must “only use do­mes­tic so­cial net­works” for their com­mu­ni­ca­tion, the min­istry said in a state­ment.

Tele­gram is the most pop­u­lar so­cial net­work in Iran. In 2017, the app claimed it had 40-mil­lion monthly users in the Is­lamic Repub­lic.

In­sta­gram is also very pop­u­lar, and com­pa­nies in Iran - like else­where - of­ten use both plat­forms to com­mu­ni­cate di­rectly with cus­tomers.
