In the run-up to the uprising in Egypt, young activists used social-networking sites, specifically Facebook, to call for the popular revolt against Mubarak’s government.

When thousands first took to the streets on January 25, observers said internet clicks had finally translated to action in Egypt.

Now, the country’s military rulers are turning to the same tool to promote their own cause. From Cairo, Al Jazeera’s Rawya Rageh reports.
