The revolution that was started January 25th and sparked by a Facebook page created by Google Executive, Wael Ghonim, ended with the resignation of Hosni Mubarak. During the protests and demonstrations Ghonim was kidnapped by the Egyptian government for more than a week and then released.
Ghonim is working on a book called “Revolution 2.0” which will highlight how the internet played a key role in organizing young people to make a change in Egyptian government.
The father of the baby Gamail Ibrahim chose the name Facebook as a symbolic tribute to the January 25th movement.
