Despite being outlawed in the country since 2009 and branded as "Zionist", Facebook has a new user in the form of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
The page, www.Khamenei.ir, has links to photos, speeches and a host of other material.
So far the site has not attracted a vast number of "likes", only 8,716, but this is not surprising seeing as his main fan-base, Iranians, don't have access to the site.
In the wake of the failed 2009 revolution, Iran's leaders banned Facebook as it had been effectively used by demonstrators to spread anti-government rhetoric.
Whilst there have always been a number of sites in tribute to the 73-year-old cleric, the new page was announced via his official Twitter account.
Khamenei is already socially active, a regular user of the afore-mentioned Twitter page and other media such as Google+.
Afshon Ostovar, a Middle East analyst at CNA told Today Online: "Social media gives the regime leadership another medium of communication, one that can share their message with a younger and far more international demographic."
Iran recently blocked Google after the anti-Islam film protests and is reported to be in preparations to launch it's own domestic intranet in an effort to further control Iranian's web access.
