The Internet Plays A Vital Role in Egypts' Uprising


Social media like Facebook and Twitter are playing a vital role in the uprisings in Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries. Computer information system instructor Eric Magidson says the younger generation uses this method of communication to great effect. “If people have ever questioned the power of social media; if they’ve ever questioned the influence of the Internet with politics, with business, etc., this is just another great example and I’m sure we’ll see additional examples in the future.” Protestors used Twitter and Facebook to share information and coordinate protests against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.
