Also, simply having a Facebook friend in Albania will tend to make you more interested in the events of Albania.
In 2010, people were uploading one hundred million photos on Facebook every single day.
More than that in Facebook status updates every day.
For instance, if you have a Facebook friend Abigail in Albania whom you only met once at a rock-paper-scissors competition years ago, you will generally regard Abigail's first-hand account as authoritative, even though you don't really know Abigail all that well.
Most Facebook users have people of other ethnicities and national origin as Facebook friends.
Before it is all over, the number of Facebook accounts will exceed the number of people on the planet.
