QUESTION: What new media does Ambassador Ford use (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)?

ANSWER: Ambassador Ford and other Embassy staff regularly post notes and interact with others on Facebook. The Ambassador believes it is important to use social media to get out the message that the United States wholly supports the Syrian people’s universal rights to freedom of speech and freedom of peaceful assembly.

For more information on our social media outreach to the Syrian people, Embassy Damascus also maintains a website at http://damascus.usembassy.gov/, and maintains Facebook and Twitter pages at the following addresses: (http://www.facebook.com/syria.usembassy) (http://twitter.com/usembassysyria).
