North Korea Reportedly Joins Facebook

North Korea appears to have added Facebook to the social networking sites it recently joined to ramp up its propaganda war against South Korea and the US. The account opened late Thursday under the Korean username "uriminzokkiri," meaning "on our own as a nation," an official at South Korea's Communications Standards Commission said Friday. The account opened hours after the commission blocked North Korea's 1-week-old Twitter account from being accessed in the South for containing information that is illegal under South Korean security laws, the official said.
