“Iran’s Facebook” Shuts Down

By John Lee.

Iran’s oldest social media network is to close following years of conflict with censors.

According to a report from AFP, company director Mohammad Javad Shakouri Moghadam said Cloob.com was entirely blocked three times and the last time it took 28 days to unblock it; he said the actions allowed foreign sites such as Instagram to take over.

Cloob website was launched 12 years ago as the Iranian answer to Facebook and Google’s now-dead Orkut, and at its peak had some two million users in the country.
