Facebook safe for now says TRA

According to an ITP article, the TRA is saying that Facebook.com is safe for now and that they have "no plans" to ban it. "There have been no complaints made about Facebook and there are no plans to stop people using it as of now," TRA said.

Interestingly, but perhaps not surprisingly, Facebook is the second most visited site in the Emirates, according to the article.

Hey would they every block blogger? I mean in general not specifically any one blog? I would seriously die

What do you mean by your comment, random magus. The article doesn't mention any block is being considered on blogger.com.

Anon, you chill out! RM made a comment which shows she may have misunderstood that blogger is being blocked, and she's unecessarily worried! nothing wrong in pointing out a misunderstanding, esp if it causes her not to worry, now is there ;)

I wonder if TRA has realised that by bringing Facebook to the attention of the media they have actually increased traffic to the site.

I only joined Facebook to see what the fuss was all about!
