From two major Canadian newspapers today...

One one side the GlobeandMail (National Canadian Newspaper based in Toronto) announces that Disney has opened the first networking website for kids under-14... I guess we were expecting some networking site for this age-range. For more about this click here.

On the other side, The Star, another big newspaper from Toronto, announces today that government employees will not be able to connect to Facebook from their office computer anymore. The website has been banned from most of the Ontario government connections.

This is interesting knowing that "more than 2 million Facebook users exist in Canada, making it the fastest growing market for the website, increasing at a rate of 5 per cent a week. Toronto alone has more than 500,000 registered users" (apparently Toronto is the biggest single community on Facebook). Other sites as Youtube have also been banned from Ontario government computers... but not other networking websites as (which is the most successful networking website in the States).

If you don't know what the heck is this post about and would like to know more about Facebook, click here.
