Iranian Court Summons Mark Zuckerberg

An Iranian court has some questions about privacy for Mark Zuckerberg. According to Iranian state news agency ISNA, a court in the southern province of Fars is investigating privacy violations in WhatsApp and Instagram.

Young Iranians are embracing the internet more and more. The religious conservatives have a problem with that as the influence of western culture will increase. The Iranian President Rouhani is for Iran to embrace the internet and not censor it as the hardliners want.

Mark Zuckerberg is not likely to travel to Iran. Even if he wanted to it is difficult to get a VISA as Iran is still under sanctions for its nuclear activities.

The report does not reveal what specific privacy violations the Iranians are complaining about. Are they the same issues Western users have with Facebook?

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
