    I know this has been asked before, but I have a different something in mind. Would it be illegal to make a facebook type dating site matching strangers to others in order to become long distance facebook friends?

    (This isn't my exact plan but I am looking to avoid copyright issues)

    For instance using facebook in the url, keywords, and logo over top a site title.

    If the website is a clone then you should be fine. But if your taking the actual logo then you will get copyrighted and fined or shutdown permanently. because i have heared that Zuckerberg has some mean facebook police

    I'm actually looking to make a site where I can have strangers make friends with other people alike. i.e. John M goes on and finds Megan E. at my site, they then go on Facebook and add each other. The logo isn't important, just using the title in keywords is my concern. (Whether or not written permission is requires)

    This would be the funniest thing ever to see. You would post the logo, and then literally 10 seconds later you would get hauled of to jail and beaten to death in the hole.

    NEVER mess with facebook.

    Well that answered my question pretty well. Hopefully the company I am trying to work with will maybe be open to working something out.
