Koko, the world famous gorilla who learned sign language, is taking on her next challenge -- social networking.

The Gorilla Foundation has set up pages for Koko on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to keep fans updated on her activities.

Koko, a lowland gorilla, communicates with humans through American Sign Language and has a vocabulary of over 1,300 words.

Koko was born at the San Francisco Zoo and lives in Woodside.
