Facebook has obviously become a part of Jordanian’s daily lives. I haven’t blogged about the Jordanian Facebook phenomena yet but I can tell you that the age range of people I know on Facebook range between 12 and 60.
Anyway, I recently got a comment on 360east from reader Ahmad Al-Sholi, who wants people to visit a newly set up group on Facebook that discusses Amman’s urban development. I am publishing his comment here:
We started a discussion topic for Jordanians over facebook to support The Amman Municipality progressive plan to develop the city. The group mainly focuses on recognition of good efforts to have standards, coding systems, master plan… in addition to communicating deficiencies that people see in running the city services.
Once a reasonable number contributes, we will communicate points to authorities implementing that facebook group idea “simple democracy”.
You can access this Facebook group at www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=4192127705
