Egyptian Child Named "Facebook"

 As reported by CNN, a man in Egypt has named his baby daughter Facebook in honor of the role the social  network played in the recent revolution.
Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram repports that Gamal Ibrahim gave his daughter the name “to express his joy at the achievements made by the  youth.”

People of Egypt credit Facebook, Twitter and other social media outlets for the successful revolution. One man was so happy that he named his daughter Facebook.

Many young people used Facebook and other social media networks to organize the protests, which began January 25 and ultimately led to the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak after 30 years in power.

Wael Ghonim, a Google executive who organized a Facebook page on his own time, became a central figure of the revolution.
