I have always said that all this Facebook nonsense was a bunch of funny business. Nonja, a 33-year-old orangutan living in Vienna who recently took a liking to amateur photography, has launched – well, a human friend probably did – a Facebook page showcasing a gallery of her photos. Nonja uses a camera that dispenses raisins when she takes a photo and her work already has over 500 fans on Facebook, which is more friends than I will ever have on that damn site. Lame.
