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.
