FACEBOOK has close to 600 million users, and as of yesterday, at least one baby named after it.
In honour of the role the social network played in the revolution in Egypt - which led to the departure of longtime President Hosni Mubarak - one Egyptian couple named their baby girl "Facebook", TechCrunch reported.
Citing an article in Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram, the technology blog reported that Jamal Ibrahim chose the name as a way to express his gratitude to the country's youth.
The girl's family, friends, and neighbours in the Ibrahimia region gathered around the newborn to show their continuing support for the internet-aided revolution, the paper said.
The social networking site played a crucial role in the Egyptian uprising, so much so that it has widely been labeled "the Facebook Revolution".
