Categories: East Asia, Taiwan (ROC), Governance, Ideas, Politics, Technology

President Ma Ying-jeou [1] of Taiwan(Republic of China) opens his official facebook fan page [2] today. At the “About” session it says that the goal of the fan page “…is not to be trendy, but to exchange ideas with all of you, share experiences through wall posts, think together, click ‘like’ for Taiwan…”. Twitter user @irrenhaeusler [3] soon tweeted his comment [4]:”Ma's joining Facebook immediately shows a severe defect in the site's design: there's no ‘fuck’ to click”.
