Facebook status updates referring to WikiLeaks, the classified document sharing site post at a rate of about one per second.
Controversy appears to be fueling more interest in the classified document sharing site. WikiLeaks has become the fourth-fastest growing page on Facebook, gaining 708,232 fans this week.
Facebook refuses to follow the example set by other websites that have pulled the plug on WikiLeaks, including Amazon and Paypal.
The document-sharing site has sprung up on hundreds of mirror locations after its orginal DNS servers pulled the plug. WikiLeaks community fan pages have also sprouted all over Facebook, accumulating significant numbers of “likes.”
