Iran ex-president sees Facebook as a 'blessing': report

May 31 - Facebook is a "blessing" that helps freedom-seeking movements challenge tyranny, a former president of Iran -- which routinely blocks access to the social networking site -- was quoted as saying in a report by the ISNA news agency.
"We see that a Facebook page costing nothing can outstrip several television and radio outlets, and can influence millions of people," said Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, according to ISNA report published on Tuesday and relayed by several newspapers and online sites since.
"Or a video clip captured by a mobile phone goes viral and is seen by the world. This, in my opinion, is a blessing," Rafsanjani, who now chairs an advisory body to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, was quoted as saying.
Iran systematically blocks Internet access to Facebook as part of a strict censorship of online content.
The popular video-sharing site YouTube, non-English Google sites and millions of foreign media pages are also barred./-
