News is buzzing about death penalty due to the fact that Facebook has allowed the setting up of a Facebook group which is viewed as “blasphemous” according to Islamic beliefs.

It is reported that petitioner Muhammad Azhar Sidiqque is waiting for the Pakistani police to contact Interpol about making arrangements for the arrest of Zuckerberg, Moskovitz, Hughes, and Andy (the guy who started the Facebook group – Everybody Draw Mohammed Day.”

Moreover, the Deputy Attorney General told the Pakistani High Court that Pakistan’s United Nations ambassador has been asked to escalate the issue in the U.N. General Assembly“. Examiner.com

What do you think will happen next? Will this one pass? Do you think that Facebook founder and co-founders are to blame?

Looking forward to your comments below.

Anything you “Tweet” can & will be used against you!

The Library of Congress announced this week that it will archive the billions of tweets published since Twitter launched in March 2006“. CNN on Twitter Library

Interesting piece of new, right? However, as always, there are two sides of each coin and in order to be able to weigh the outcomes of such a decision, we must lay out the facts and balance them accordingly.

So, here are my two cents…

Is archiving tweets a good thing?

One the positive side, this move ultimately means that future generations will have an unprecedented amount of firsthand data (in 140-character bites) about what every Twitter user from every corner of the world was doing, thinking and feeling at every moment starting 2006.

On the other hand, this also means that every silly, emotionally-charged, anger-based, drunken-caused or fear-fueled tweet, that every Twitter user from every corner of the world might have regrettably tweeted since 2006, will be there for future generations to feed on and potential employers or even partners to abuse!
