Egypt`s military council opens Facebook page

Egypt`s Supreme Council of the armed forces has opened a FB page to promote its image.



Cairo: Egypt`s Supreme Council of the armed forces, which is currently running the country after protests ousted president Hosni Mubarak, has opened a Facebook page to promote its image among youngsters.

"This page will make it possible for people to make complaints or requests," the army said in a statement.

This new form of contact would make relations between the Egyptian people and the Supreme Council more transparent and trustful, it said.

The interior ministry has also opened a Facebook page to counter accusations by the public of corruption and non-transparency.
Eighteen days of protests in Egypt resulted in Mubarak stepping down Feb 11 after 30 years in power. Many young protesters were using social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to demand economic and social reform and better domestic security.
