I think that is even how it started
I was just reading this article on CNN about facebook and I must say, this seems like much more of an American thing to do than an Icelandic thing. Icelanders used facebook to talk about politics, really, as far as I can tell, most of my Icelandic friends, a majority of their updates are political. In America, on the other hand, facebook has been utilizes in a slightly less serious way. I wonder if I should start a facebook page for my dead cat Ember, and have him respond to all the political posts in Icelandic, just to be especially annoying, I guess?
