Re: Serious question

Accessing facebook from any of the numerous countries there it is banned either continually or intermittently during periods of unrest.

This is handy from a free-speech perspective, as facebook does have uses in organising protests and posting news the government would rather people not hear. From Facebook's perspective it's a way to get a little market share in those countries. Probably not a great deal, but better than none.
