United Arab Emirates Block Facebook

October 2nd, 2007 No comments

The UAE’s major ISP, Etisalat, appears to have blocked Facebook. Users are reportedly seeing either an Arabic message explaining the block (shown below), or simply seeing a bogus 404 page when attempting to access Facebook. Earlier this year, the UAE temporarily blocked Orkut.

Disabling social networks is becoming increasingly popular in repressive regimes, with Facebook recently being blocked in Iran, and China blocking bloggers on LiveJournal earlier this year.

Facebook users in the UAE have setup a petition to try and prevent the nation from blocking the site.

As you may well have read in the media, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been taken to a federal court in the US regarding original ownership.

The case, which has been running for over 3 years, is between Facebook and rival social networking site ConnectU.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, and Divya Narendra claim Zuckerberg took the source code and business plan to their site while he was a programmer for their site before using them to launch Facebook in 2003.

ALL IN FAVOUR OF KEEPING FACEBOOK AS IT IS Sign This Petition AND INVITE ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS to Sign it

Do You Love Skype and Hate Facebook!

June 29th, 2007 No comments

Nowadays Facebook is everywhere, facebookists are around the corner, facebookism is in the air and Facebook applications are by thousands now. I even launched the blog www.facebookism.com to cover anything related to this phenomenon.

The more I am digging around this new social network, the more I am discovering people rejecting it without reason.

Then this morning while turning my laptop on in the office, my Skype was signing in and I wondered why some people who reject Facebook, do use Skype?

Skype has many features that are similar to Facebook and Skype was there way before Facebook. I will not count the option of both of them, but your profile on Skype have many identical fields as Facebook, you can have your picture attached, you add friends from anywhere in the world, you can have voice chat, you can have video chat, you can even search for people by very small details (age, gender, country, etc…)

Lots of people are having social networks on Skype or MSN or Gtalk or other messengers without even noticing it, but I don’t really understand why they reject Facebook in an era where the internet will move soon from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0.

If some people are afraid about their privacy, they should know that everything is controllable and that on September 8, 2006 Mark Zuckerberg (the founder of Facebook) apologized from many upset Facebook members who responded with outrage and he offered many privacy options.

My small conclusion, Skype and Facebook are almost the same in many issues and different in others but at the end, you can make your networks on both.
