I apologize, I just re-read the post. You meant that it was intentional for thefacebook.com and generic facebooks to have the same name. The name was not a coincidence. Sorry.
I think you guys are confusing thefacebook.com with a generic facebook that each school might do. For example, my UG school printed up a facebook prior to my freshman year and mailed it to everyone in my class, so that we had pictures and names of our new classmates. It had nothing to do with thefacebook.com. It's just a coincidence that they are both referred to as "facebook." Thefacebook.com is a website run by a few creative students, I believe from Harvard, and there is no way that law schools have any affiliation with the website. If your law school has a facebook, it's entirely their own creation and will only involve the students at your law school.No, it was intentional. The developers of thefacebook.com wanted it to be the electronic version of a facebook: a way to find and meet other undergrads.
Where are you going?
