If you’re checking Facebook—after work, say, because obviously you’d never check Facebook at work—and see that a friend’s latest status update reads, “Israel has over 200 wineries,” then chances are your friend has downloaded the Israpedia application and is letting it brag about Israel on his or her behalf. The program, started by several students at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, issues status updates for its users that highlight fun facts about Israel. (Users can always override individual updates.) So far, according to Haaretz, more than 3,000 users have downloaded it. Next stop for Israpedia’s developers? Twitter. Better get those fun facts down to 140 characters .
