Honest Abe has been many things: lawyer, President, vampire hunter…now, it appears, he was also a fan of social networking. The late President founded – and attempted to patent – The Springfield Gazette, which was essentially the Facebook News Feed on a real-world paper. Looks like Zuck has some explaining to do, and Aaron Sorkin may want to release a followup to “The Social Network” with a time-travelling plot pitting Zuck and Abe against one another. [Update: Turn out this is a hoax]
