The Baby Named Facebook

In the aftermath of the Egyptian’s recent revolution, fueled by Facebook and Twitter, an Egyptian father has named his newborn daughter “Facebook”.

The revolution that was started January 25th and sparked by a Facebook page created by Google Executive, Wael Ghonim, ended with the resignation of Hosni Mubarak. During the protests and demonstrations Ghonim was kidnapped by the Egyptian government for more than a week and then released.

Ghonim is working on a book called “Revolution 2.0” which will highlight how the internet played a key role in organizing young people to make a change in Egyptian government.

The father of the baby Gamail Ibrahim chose the name Facebook as a symbolic tribute to the January 25th movement.
