Die Iranische Revolutionsgarde sammelt offenbar gezielt Informationen über iranische Internetnutzer. Mit mehreren Projekten geht sie gegen Nutzer sozialer Netzwerke vor und betont die Unsicherheit im Netz. Der Druck soll wohl wachsen.

Die Iranische Revolutionsgarde will offenbar stärker gegen soziale Netzwerke vorgehen. Wie das Zentrum zur Untersuchung der organisierten Cyberkriminalität am vergangenen Sonntag mitteilte, soll gezeigt werden, dass „organisierte Aktivitäten“ auf Facebook nicht sicher sind. Auch jene, die „unmoralische Inhalte produzieren“ sollten sich nicht in Sicherheit wiegen.


Small Media’s Election Monitoring Series

This is the first report in Small Media’s Election Monitoring series. Our research and design teams are working with research specialist Ali Honari to analyse and interpret data collected on Twitter, Facebook and other sources regarding the 2013 Iranian presidential elections.

In this baseline report we look at Tweet frequency, key words, and we introduce you to the template and layout of the reports.

In our upcoming reports we will break down the data and look at sentiment, hot topics, candidate controversies, and social media spats. The story of this image is clearly Rafsanjani’s last minute application for candidacy, and his subsequent disqualification.

Over the coming weeks we’ll be looking at each of the candidates in more depth, now that we know who they are!

On Thursday, May 23 at 19:30 GMT:

Is Iran going offline ahead of its upcoming election? Iranian web users are reporting slow Internet speeds, difficulties accessing email, and faulty Virtual Private Networks. The government confirmed slow speeds but denied it has to do with the June 14 election. Critics, however, say the Internet crackdown is all about preventing the recurrence of the 2009 protests. So, how will Internet disturbances and social media surveillance impact Iran’s election?

In this episode of The Stream, we speak to:
