Egyptian Man Names Daughter 'Facebook'

A young Egyptian man has honored Facebook's important role in the recent protests by naming his daughter after the social network. According to Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram, newborn Facebook Jamal Ibrahim "received many gifts from the youth who were overjoyed by her arrival and the new name." There are five million Facebook users in Egypt, more than any other Middle Eastern country. Welcome to the world, Facebook! I mean Facebook the baby, not Facebook the Facebook. You know what I mean.
