Uzbek Version of Facebook Targets Patriotic Users

BY Lisa Goldman | Thursday, July 12 2012

Global Voices reports on a local version of Facebook in Uzbekistan. Named YouFace, the site is a private initiative of an Uzbek businessman who says his goal is to “boost patriotism among young people in Uzbekistan.”

Responses amongst Uzbeks, based on the tweets collated by the Global Voices author, have so far been mixed.
