As youth and other good citizens across Egypt take the aftermath of last weekend’s protests into their hands, many are speculating what will become of the country.

The majority of the protestors have only known one Egyptian ruler, due to nearly three decades of rule under President Hosni Mubarak, but are still certain that their country deserves better. While age and experience may not have been on their side, Egyptian youth know how to harness the power of their resources and fellow disgruntled citizens.

Demonstrations in Egypt have been propelled by the use of social media, which are at the roots of the country-wide internet shutdown. Aside from organizing on Twitter and Facebook, protestors are expressing their discontent in a variety of ways.
