Facebook has been blocked in the UAE. [Feb. 3rd, 2008|09:14 am]

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.

It's working for me, but the weird one is flickr, which is a website that has been blocked for a long time, but now it's open, but you cannot see any user pictures. I wonder if they are re-routing due to that cable problem?

I think by the time you left this comment, Facebook had been unblocked; it was only blocked the morning of the 3rd. I don't know what they're doing to Flickr! Maybe blocking other sub-domains within Flickr, like static.flickr.com?
