Egypt Protests: Egyptian Protester Holds Facebook 'Thank You" Sign (photo)
Many of the protest signs being displayed on the streets of Cairo in Tahrir Square urge Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak to step down now. There are few that are a different, case in point: an Egyptian protester holding a sign that appears to thank the social media site Facebook.
Unless some extremely clever photoshop was done the Facebook Egypt Protest Sign appears to be legitimate. Further, I don't read or Arabic so I am relying on the Twitter user, Richard Engel, an NBC reporter in Cairo, who originally posted the photo. He says indeed it is a Facebook thank you sign that he shot in Cairo.
Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are being credited with acting as vehicle to mobilize protesters in Egypt against the Mubarak regime.
