    I think those guys/girls are a bit late. April Fool's Day is long gone. A local blog joke about that, back then.

    Then again, some people believe that by sending received e-mails to other people, life will become great all of a sudden. o_O

    Unrelated. One is a complete hoax/ joke and one is China trying to make a little money.

    Not to great an article;
    "...The cocky Chinese are not the only parties deluding themselves. Zuckerberg, in the words of one reporter, “believes that Facebook can be an agent of change in China, as it has been in countries such as Egypt and Tunisia.” After the disastrous China experiences of Yahoo and Google and the troubled history of Microsoft there—not to mention Beijing’s recent tirade against foreign social media—the Facebook founder appears both arrogant and naïve.
    ..."

    Zuckerberg might perhaps be 'both arrogant and naïve' but surely not because a random reporter puts words in his mouth.
    However, thinking Facebook can have a 'Tunesian effect' on China, wouldn't be naïve but indeed delusional.
