The Iranian government recently unblocked Facebook after briefly banning the site, which opposition supporters have used to promote their candidates. The Financial Times, noting that Egyptian activists (such as the April 6 organizers) have also been using Facebook for grassroots political organizing, says that “Web 2.0″ technologies that allow users to create and share content online are potentially potent tools for undermining authoritarianism.
