This article focuses on the move of Sabena Puri, restaurateur and owner of Junnoon, a classy Indian restaurant in Palo Alto, California, to make Junnoon a spot at the social networking site Facebook. The move is in response to her knowing that most of its customers use Facebook to update on each others. Puri created a profile page that includes photos of the restaurant, reviews and a link to Amazon, where Facebookers can buy a book written by the restaurant's chef. Since August 2007, 94 Facebook users have become "fans" of Junnoon.
