Uprisings in Egypt

This article talks about the recent uprisings in Egypt. It states that some of the protesters arranged their events through social media sites such as facebook and twitter. Also, some of the people have put footage on youtube of the uprisings. This shows that social media can have a positive, and HUGE effect. Without these social media sites, not as many people may have shown up to protest, and they might not have been as successful in the uprisings.
