Facebook has been credited for the uprising against the Egyptian's Mubarak government in January 2011 uprising. Bel Trew explained that during that time, "'It also acted as an alternative to traditional Egyptian media.Citizen journalism really exploded in 2011 and Facebook and Twitter were one of those ways, well two of those ways, that people were able to get information out there to the rest of the world because their own media wasn't helping'"(Anonymous, 2014, para. 8).

Facebook allows users to organize interest and advocacy groups where anyone who belongs to the site can join.
