Protesers at The Bahrain Embassy in London were ready for a day of social networking

As I was leaving the protest this young man was just arriving. He had two important items he brought with him he stated. "I have the flag from my country and my mobile phone, nothing will stop me now". One thing that was obvious was that the protesters were armed with iPhones and Blackberries and a lot of passion to make sure that relatives in Bahrain could see this event in real time. Many had already uploaded videos to Youtube and many were tweeting. Also the web 3.0 lab found that Facebook was an important tool for these particular protesters, most said that is how they found out about the protest.
