Abstract- Facebook and other social media sites have become vital communication tools of public diplomacy. Successful implementation of Facebook diplomacy is widely required to be used by the foreign policy in: branding nation, lobbying, and culture exchange and expanding and building good relationships. This paper evaluates how Facebook has been used as a tool of public diplomacy by both the U.S consulate in Erbil and Kurdish representative in Washington through adopting quantitative and qualitative content analysis of blogs that published and responded by users. This demonstrates which side has used this tool successfully.
