Wael Ghonim praised by Facebook VP

Wael Ghonim, the Google executive who became a symbol of the young, tech-savvy Egyptians that helped bring down the regime of President Hosni Mubarak is called a hero by Elliot Schrage, Facebook Inc.’s vice president of communications, policy and marketing, reports WSJ. Here is what Elliot said of Ghonim:

Mr. Ghonim is a hero and, like all true heroes, he diminishes his own role and gives credit to others. We’ve witnessed brave people of all ages coming together to effect a profound non-violent change in their country. Certainly, technology was a vital tool in their efforts but we believe their bravery and determination mattered most.” --------
