Facebook hosts royalty as the Queen signs on

In what is either a boon for Facebook or a sign of the disintegration of the British monarchy, Queen Elizabeth II has officially become a member of Facebook.
While her handlers may not be posting her bra color any time in the near future, the matronly monarch has received more than 113,000 “likes” since she jumped on the social networking bandwagon Monday and is racking up the comments as well. Unfortunately, adoring fans will be unable to friend the Queen, much less poke her (thank you, British sense of decorum), yet there are plenty of pics and a “Near Me” application that lets people see when the royal family might be dropping by the neighborhood.
Think she plays Farmville like the rest of us peasants?
