This paper offers updated evidence on social disclosure trends in Egypt. It examines whether Egyptian companies care about the community as an important stakeholder in their Internet social reporting. In doing so, the paper employs content analysis to measure and explore the social responsibility self-disclosure practices of major Egyptian companies in their online annual reports and/or Websites. The analysis shows that although there are good examples of corporate social responsibility practices in some Egyptian companies working in the telecommunication and construction industries, the extent of social disclosure in other Egyptian companies working in other industries is inadequate and there is still a long way to go. There is evidence to suggest that these companies' social disclosure is still below the expectations of the community of stakeholder groups.
