Facebook Forever

In most countries in the Arab world, Facebook is now one of the 10 most-visited Web sites, and in Egypt it ranks third, after Google and Yahoo. About one in nine Egyptians has Internet access, and around 9 percent of that group are on Facebook — a total of almost 800,000 members.

ABC News reporting that backstage, President Carter appeared to snub President Clinton on his way out to the platform. Anybody notice that? Apparently, Carter is upset Clinton rejected his friend request on Facebook.

Facebook is more like a utility for (re)-connecting with others that we have known or we want to know. How about Friendster? It is perhaps the same but with a younger and funkier community.
