Mark Zuckerberg plays down Facebook's role in Arab Spring

Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday played down the role his social network had played in revolutions that have rocked countries from Tunisia to Egypt to Libya.
"It's not a Facebook thing, it's an Internet thing," he said when asked about Facebook's part in the so-called Arab Spring. "I think Facebook was neither necessary nor sufficient for any of those things to happen."
"If it weren't Facebook, it would be something else," Zuckerberg said.
