Facebook has been blocked in the UAE.

Edit: I read that it's unblocked again. There's a theory it was blocked to reduce traffic since service is compromised in the whole country. It's not my theory.

The domain Myspace.com isn't blocked, but the other domains (where all the Myspace content actually is) are blocked.

LJ was sorta blocked for almost two years - no "SITE BLOCKED" screen of death, but it couldn't be loaded. It would immediately return a tcp error, as if it timed out. But it suddenly started working again, about a week ago.

The best thing about Facebook, here, is that people actually use it. The first couple of years I was here, people couldn't understand why I wanted to talk to people over the internet, and really couldn't comprehend that a lot of my best friends were people I knew first online. But everybody is inexplicably really into Facebook, so if I want to share pictures or anything, it has to be on Facebook if I want people to actually see them.
