Why I deleted my Facebook Account?

I deleted my Facebook account specially after President Obama in his Nowruz Speech referred to Facebook as a weapon against Iran.

Of course another reason for that is: believe it or not, Facebook is not designed according to our culture and beliefs, so you could see a lot of photos or videos that are not recommended for Shia Muslims and specially a Young Shia Muslim.

For example one day I saw a photo of one of my female classmates that I couldn’t believe she does not believe in Hijab.

One day I received an email from one of my students who said:

Dear Professor! you always recommend us not to use VPN or Proxy to bypass Filtered websites because they are full of sins and may cause you to fall into Satan’s trap, so why you yourself has two accounts in Facebook? (One for myself and one for my website)

He was right and I didn’t know what to say 🙁

Of course I created my accounts when Facebook was at the beginning of his road and our government hadn’t blocked that and I didn’t log in to my account after it was filtered.

But maybe the main reason for which I decided to delete my accounts today, is that after Obama’s speech, Facebook increased its Email Alerts to tempt Iranian’s youth to be active in Facebook. I received more than 10 emails through these three days!

I’m sure Facebook does that just for Iranian users who are not active!

Therefore, before I fall into the trap of Satan, I went to this address and I deleted both of my accounts:

    Well done. I’m happy for you.
    I deleted my Facebook account, too.

    May the youth find the right path …

  4. youtube is also filterd long time ago how did you saw that anyway? 😀

    I think your view of Facebook is all wrong.
    if bunch of character and image on screen is weapon, I use that weapon to kill everybody that don’t respect freedom and try to give it from us. ( you know I don’t kill anyone for any reason even a murderer, that was a expression )

    ( I have to say that, I also have problem with facebook privacy policey and many other things see here: http://stallman.org/facebook.html )

    if you don’t believe in something so do not, nobody made you to do. if you don’t like someone believe or behaver so don’t make contact with him/her and if you somehow being forced so don’t mind him/her.

    why do you tell your student not to use vpn or whatever ?
    that’s make me so angry who are u people what are u thinking of

    I doubt that facebook would do such thing and if they do I support it, that’s very kind of them to care about Iranian people 🙂

    as I am a computer engineer student, I thought that computer engineers see the world in a different ways not in anyway like you. and it’s a shame for me to be wrong on this one.

    • Thank you friend, but don’t you think you have told me what to do and what not to do?
      According to yourself:

      if you don’t like someone believe or behaver so don’t make contact with him/her and if you somehow being forced so don’t mind him/her.

      you should not tell me what you think and believe!!!!!!!

      It’s a shame for you to tell something which you yourself do not pay attention to it…

      (Think about my answer… Is it possible not to say others about what you think that it is better? Isn’t your comment against freedom?)

      • I think you get my point.

        I did not tell you what to do or what not to do I just explain a choice that you have in a situation like that vs deleting your facebook account

        and I didn’t tell you my believes ( what is my believes ? ) I don’t believes in hejab but I didn’t say that and if I do I wouldn’t delete my facebook account because someone post a picture of himself in facebook ( Now I told you my believes )

        I didn’t get your point by “It’s a shame for you to tell something which you yourself do not pay attention to it…”

        yes of course it’s POSSIBLE. how do you know what is better? if it’s so obvious why I didn’t get to it. …

        against freedom!!!! what are you talking about? I guess you just want to get a positive reaction by your blog. I just wanted to know why people with the believes like you that filter facebook , youtube and …. websites and ban newspappers ….. and don’t want to be part of the Global Village , think of.

        and if you mean I can not argue with people like them to do not get my freedom because that’s take their freedom of taking mine 😀 , I don’t have any answer for that

  5. maybe it had better that you tell your students:
    it’s better that don’t use anti-filters for devil purposes
    because there are many non-blocked abusive content!

  6. desirable, I interested in your Spiritual Power,
    by the way I think VPN conections can be useful most of the time, at least for me 😉

    Good Luck

  7. i deleted too, because i think this is spy site that contoroled from cia for known our people thinking ,ideas ,where they live from where they conected and els

    Hi dear , I usually follow your notes in both website and i’ve got that you are a computer geek and very religious person , i don’t want to talk about my believe and your believe about I’m agree or not agree , but I just want to say something and I wish that you goes after that and get the best result as you always do.

    You use “Shia Muslims and specially a Young Shia Muslim” , I wanted to ask why you used Shia? I’m a Sonny guy which lives in Iran and of course I’m Muslim.

    I don’t want mention which one is right or wrong , the important thing is we are both Muslim and we believes in God and our destiny in another world and preacher Muhammad.

    Better to change your mind in this regards.
    Thanks for the time you spend to making the world a better place.

      Hi there,
      Thanks for your comment.
      I didn’t mean Shia is right or Sunni is wrong! I just said it’s against Shia beliefs…
      Maybe it’s because as far as I know most of Sunnies do not believe in Hijab and other rules about women. (Of course I’m not sure and I’m saying this from the movies I’ve seen from Sunni countries)

      Anyway, yes, we Shias are the leaders of oneness(vahdat) 😉

        Wowwwwwww , I’ve never though with my self that I’ll hear this answer from you.I always thought you are a man which do research and than start to talk or make decisions but in this regards it’s seems not like what I thought.
        Muslim is the one who walks in Islam ways , being without the Hijab means being out of Islam way so we can’t say they are Muslim or sunny.i want to say there is no Sunny or Shia , it’s just Islam and Muslim but you made it worse.

        As a suggestion , I recommend you to do some research about Sunny people in the world or Iran , as a sunny I can help you as far as it’s possible for me.

        If you as a college teacher don’t know Sunnis how I can expect others to act and talk well.

  9. facebook , twiter ,youtube and many other website is alive .
    If you want to teach your students about Islam, it is better for them to get acquainted with the religion of Islam because the problem will not be solved by deleting the account.
    The solution is not to run away from problems.
    Good luck
