Why Facebook is not blocked by Etisalat

In an earlier post, I mentioned how social networking sites (like Orkut) are blocked in the UAE by the ISP Etisalat.

Ever wondered why they don’t block Facebook? …probably because Etisalat advertises on Facebook!!

    Man that is some weird mentality.
    why the heck should social networking websites be blocked ?
    can you provide 1 reason ?

    My argument is.. why some are blocked while some others aren’t?

  3. EhabT says:

    i got your point, i am just starting another argument.
    Why should they be blocked ?
    if for the same reasons the Syrian Government provided … then msn messenger, yahoo messenger, skype .. and many others cause a bigger threat.
    the whole idea of internet is a bigger threat.

    the threat of dealing with foreign countries 😛
