Oh where do I begin with this one!
OK so Facebook and other Social Media platforms (maily Twitter and YouTube) are accredited with helping the Egyptian revolution of January 25th 2011 to be a success. And it’s only normal for the Egyptians to pay tribute for these companies. But THIS is a bit overboard.
Jamal Ibrahim, a young Egyptian man in his 20s named his new born baby girl… “Facebook”!
As featured in an article from “Al Ahram” newspaper:
“A young man in his twenties wanted to express his gratitude about the victories the youth of 25th of January have achieved and chose to express it in the form of naming his firstborn girl “Facebook” Jamal Ibrahim (his name.) The girl’s family, friends, and neighbors in the Ibrahimya region gathered around the new born to express their continuing support for the revolution that started on Facebook. “Facebook” received many gifts from the youth who were overjoyed by her arrival and the new name. A name [Facebook] that shocked the entire world.”
Poor little girl! She is in for one HARD life!
I can start to imagine jokes about how 580 Million people are ON Facebook!
Or when the poor girl grows up a bit and wants to start using Facebook itself!
Check out some photos of a few upcoming milestones in little “Facebook”‘s life:
I just hope that by the time she’s 18 she wouldn’t have had 500 million users!
