The CIA quickly confirm their presence in social media in a press statement and announced they had opened a Facebook account.
CIA got the account after entering a complaint against Twitter to take it from someone who used to fabricate the agency, said CIA spokesman Todd Ebitz.
The agency slogan, "We are the first line of defense of the nation. We achieve what others can not accomplish and we go where others can not go."
In both social media accounts, the CIA promised to share "photo, the flashback intelligence history and exciting facts from CIA World Fact book."
