Facebook hosts global gossiping

SINCE many people can no longer make a cup of tea without telling the world about it on Facebook, it was hardly surprising the royal wedding dominated status updates yesterday.
As the wedding unfolded, users of the site poured their excitement about it straight on to the web pages.
By the time the newlyweds emerged for the procession to Buckingham Palace, the number of mentions by users around the country had hit 1,199,196, Facebook said.
Less predictable, perhaps, was the fact that during the ceremony, Prince Harry was talked about more than the groom by UK users.
