For a small fee of £20,000.00 you could be the proud owner of facebook.mu. Of course, ".mu" is the specific domain used in Mauritius, the island off the coast of Africa in the southwest Indian Ocean. Mauritius is home to a little over a million inhabitants-including the now extinct Dodo Bird. It's also becoming a sort of "hot spot" for vacationers, especially after Prince Harry and his ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy went there for New Years this year. But how much is this island worth in Facebook terms?
A lot more than you may think. The owners of Facebook.mu, the official domain name for the country seem to think that the growing country's residents have a major need for the website and are valuable hits (would Zuckerberg agree?). For a small fee of £20,000.00 you could be the proud owner of facebook.mu. Check out the ebay auction for details: "We are providing you with an excellent opportunity to do a great domain name investment in a multi billion dollar industry!" So far, zero bids have been placed. We will be monitoring the dodo's buyer's should they be biting on this "deal".
