This Jan.18 2011 photo shows former blogger and now Tunisian deputy minister in charge of Youth and Sports, Slim Amamou, right, shaking hands with Tunisian interim President Fouad Mebazaa, in Tunis. At the height of the Tunisian uprising, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali's security agents repeatedly shut down websites and arrested, even tortured, some of the bloggers helping drive the protests against him. But two months after Ben Ali's fall, the caretaker government has embraced the very tools its predecessor tried to destroy. It has lifted web censorship. Key ministries now communicate with citizens through Facebook. (AP PHOTO/Hassene Dridi)
