>> China blocks YouTube again, MySpace gets instant messaging and you can now stalk potential dates on your iPhone with the new Match.com application. It's Tuesday, March 24, I'm Natali Del Conte and it's time to get Loaded. ^M00:00:13 [ Music ] ^M00:00:18 >> China has blocked YouTube -- again. On Monday a spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry told reporters, "Many people have a false impression that the Chinese government fears the Internet. In fact it is just the opposite."

I don't think so. In perhaps better Facebook news, Netflix has announced that it will integrate the Facebook connect platform. Netflix users will now have their movie ratings show up if they choose on their Facebook profiles.
