Audio ripped from video:
Youtube, Facebook and Twitter have become the new weapons of mass mobilization; geeks have taken on dictators; bloggers are dissidents; and social networks have become rallying forces for social justice.

So, are social networks triggering social revolution? And where will the next domino fall?

Empire finds out.
