A day after Twitter was blocked by the Egyptian government, Facebook is reportedly inaccessible on Wednesday, January 26, 2011. Twitter has confirmed on Tuesday, Jan 25, that its site was blocked by authorities due to anti-government unrest in Egypt, where thousands of demonstrators are protesting against Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.


Two reports from Herdict.org, a project of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, showed that www.facebook.com was not accessible in Egypt.

However, there was still no confirmation if indeed Facebook was blocked by Egyptian authorities. The move to block Twitter was made to control protesters from using social networking sites in their campaign against President Mubarak.

Thousands of demonstrators are seeking the ouster of President Mubarak.
