Over the course of the last week Egyptian protestors have credited Facebook for helping them organize and over throw the government.

Talking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Wael Ghonim said he’d like to meet Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg one day and thank him. Facebook has played down its role, saying it was, “their bravery and determination [of protesters] that mattered most.”

The revolution that took place in Tunisia and then in Cairo must be a dream come true for Zuckerberg, who predicted two years ago that social media would change “how people relate to government and their leadership.”

But it may turn out to be a nightmare for the tech giant’s many investors.
