BAGHDAD (AP) - The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad is looking for Iraqi friends on its new Facebook page.

A spokesman says the embassy launched the page Thursday with the
aim of reaching out to Iraqi youth who want to learn more about
American culture and society.

Chief among the page's attractions is the "English Language
Corner" where Iraqis can learn how to use American expressions,
such as "once in a blue moon."

Embassy spokesman Philip Frayne says anyone can post questions
and comments on the Facebook page, though it is monitored for
inappropriate content.

The launch of the Facebook page is the latest effort by the
State Department to boost interest in Iraq's online culture.
