Yerevan, November 20. ArmInfo. Nana Martirosyan. Facebook is the only social network in Armenia to influence the public and political process in the country.

Baghdasaryan recalled that the Movement "Let's Pay 100 drams" was created on Facebook and then went to the streets to protest against increasing transport fare.

The expert said that political figures have been recently actively promoting their ideas on Facebook. Virtual wars were held on Facebook during and after elections in the country. People also voice the problems with human rights, army problems and other issues on social media. She said that 69% of the polled said they are active users, another 27% called themselves as passive users. Another 5% of the respondents said they use the social network depending on the situation.
