Building a fun place for 500 million people to share pics and play silly games is *NOT* that cool. I believe what more cool is to enable technology for freedom of expression and not to chicken out something which facebook is doing in the case of egypt crisis. They are okay to let their 5 million egyptian members down because they don't want to make angry egypt govt. and other countries under dictatorship. And expecially China where they are banned but want a pie of 420 million people using internet. If Facebook wants to remain a place where people hang out with their friends they certainly have to do more .
