The Power of Facebook
Social networks are hitting it big time. I remember first getting into it via e-circles which was a network of friends. Then we evolved to Friendster and then there were the MySpace,Hi5 and the list went on and on. But when Facebook hit the market, it blew the competition off.. pretty much totally. Excerpts from the Facebook blog :
Crazy isnt it! Do you Facebook?

9-year-old Tamil Girl becomes Microsoft Certified Pro
A nine year-old girl in India named M. Lavinashree has passed the Microsoft Certified Professional Exam, becoming the youngest person to ever pull it off (smashing the record previously held by a 10 year-old Pakistani girl). The youngster has a long history of making records in her short life — including reciting all 1,300 couplets of a 2,000 year-old Tamil epic at the age of three — and now she's now cramming for the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer Exam. When Lavinashree was one and a half years old her mother, M.Induleka, began to teach her English alphabets playfully. The alphabets were plastic toys and when her mother dictated the alphabets one by one, she pointed out them accurately. She also learnt to identify the symbols of our nation, national anthem, national song, flags of various nations, leaders of our country, countries and their capitals, fruits, vegetables, flowers, shapes and many others.When her elder sister Lavanya started studying Thirukural, Lavinashree forced her mother to teach her the kurals and started repeating the words effortlessly "We never forced her to study. She developed her own interest and we only acted as facilitators," says K. Munisamy, father of Lavinashree.
While our makkals are busy partying for scoring straight A's in their PMR and SPM examinations, this little Indian girl did something which we would have never thought of; by passing the Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) exam at the tender age of 9 (8 year-old as listed in some other sites). And oh yeah, she has a website dedicated to her at: National Child Award
