The article supports that it is not the only one who questions this controversy. Many Iranians question the fairness of the situation, as they are not allowed to use Facebook while the Supreme Leader himself is allowed. The article also mentioned that there were critical comments on the page that threatened and predicted the fall of Khamenei, and gave pungent negative views on the Iranian government. Yet these comments were swiftly removed, and some people have been jailed. It is given that the Iranian government is now hiring youngsters who are willing to work 24 hours a day to keep the Supreme Leader’s Facebook page clean of negative comments. The author notes that the Iranian government, and especially the Supreme Leader, is not open to any discussion or debate on the Facebook page. It is rather a type of a show that Khamenei put on with unclear intention. Yet the author is positive that many people are questioning this controversy even in Iran, and that perhaps Khamenei’s opening of Facebook account already is Iran’s defeat against the power of social media and international community. The author remains skeptical of whether Khamenei will truly be able to ignore and eliminate all the negative views on the social network, and gives hope to the audience that maybe one day, the international community will win against the corrupt government of Iran through the means of the internet and social networking services.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
