Baby in Egypt named “Facebook” after the social network’s role in the country’s revolution

It was only a matter of time. A man in Egypt has named his newborn daughter Facebook in honor of the social network's pivotal role in the country's political revolution. A major supporter of civilian protests, he was apparently so pleased with the use of social media as a mobilizing force, he felt majorly in Mark Zuckerberg's debt.

The girl's full name is Facebook Jamal Ibrahim, which I guess flows better than AOL or Yahoo Jamal Ibrahim. Personally, I would have gone with Twitter. It's both relevant and adorable.  Plus, the bird logo would look great as a border in a baby's room, right?
