Will Asia friend Facebook?

Mark Zuckerberg's dream of connecting all two billion internet users is only going to happen if the social network is able to make a lot more friends in Asia, and that's easier said than done.

Facebook aims to connect all two billion internet users. So far it has captured 845 million of them. Of the rest, nearly 60 per cent live in Asia and hooking them is going to be a daunting challenge.

A block on access in China, court cases in India and rivalry from other services elsewhere in the region stand between Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook and more than 700 million users.
