Iran’s Minister of Information and Communications Technology said that the ministry has offered a proposal to change the way Facebook is censored in Iran.
Mahmoud Vaezi said "In case the technological prerequisites exist we propose to change the way Facebook and other social websites are censored. This would be a way in which people themselves would be able to become the police of the internet and use it properly.”
Vaezi stated that the useful pages of Facebook must be open to all, adding that the censorship must be content-based so that people will be able to use "the useful content.”
"Right now there doesn’t exist the possibility to filter proper and improper pages based on the content, but a team is doing the technical work to make it possible,” he added.
