How important is social networking in your life? What does it mean to you? Are you so invested in Facebook, Twitter or Gchat that you’d name your firstborn after one of the sites? Well that’s exactly what one Egyptian man did.

According to Al-Ahram, a popular Egyptian newspaper, a twenty-something year old, first time father named his daughter “Facebook” Jamal Ibrahim (his name). The father named his daughter Facebook to commemorate the role, the social networking site played in planning and orchestrating the January 25th revolution against President Mubarak.
