IPv6 over Social Networks!

Low IPv6 adoption has been long established to be a difficult nut to crack. On the other hand, social networks (Facebook, MySpace, Orkut etc) are facing scaling problems! How about using the burgeoning social network mesh to 'tunnel' IPv6 ?
That is exactly what RFC 5514 suggests. In fact, IP over Social Networks (IPoSN) has been implemented for facebook. Here lies the facebook app implementing IPoSN.
Enjoy ;)

P.S: For the uninitiated - this is a hilarious 'April Fool's' joke; RFC included.
