The trial heard his posts paid tribute to gains made by Islamic State militants with attacks in Canada and other Western countries.
Hamdan said he began posting comments on his Facebook profile and created some pages based initially on what he saw on social media, which played a big role in the series of demonstrations that swept through the Arab world.
