(LEAD) N. Korea apparently joins Facebook in latest online propaganda foray
By Sam Kim
SEOUL, Aug. 20 (Yonhap) -- North Korea appears to have opened an account with the global social media site Facebook in its latest propaganda offensive tapping such highly popular sites as Twitter and YouTube.

A request, or "note," seeking confirmation from the listed operator of the Facebook page was not immediately returned. An official for the South's Korea Communications Commission said he is aware of the account, but declined to confirm whether it was run by North Korean authorities.
