ABSTRACT
The article discusses the revolution in Egypt and the organizers and constituents among the political activists who have taken part in demonstrations against the regime of President Hosni Mubarak. Most Egyptians who demonstrated in Cairo, Egypt's Tahrir Square reportedly joined spontaneously. The protest activities, however, are said to have been planned well in advance using online social networks. Political groups involved in the planning included the April 6 Youth Movement and the Ghad, or Tomorrow, Party. Unemployed engineer Ahmed Shahawi is cited for having invited numerous Facebook web-site friends to join in the protests.
