SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Facebook has seen a drop in traffic to its Web site from Egypt on Thursday amid anti-government protests in that country, the company said.

“We are aware of reports of disruption to service and have seen a drop in traffic from Egypt this morning,” Facebook spokesperson Jillian Carroll told Reuters in an email.
