No Foreign Social Media in Schools
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.
