    I see absolutely no similarity what so ever. I think you need to get both your eyes and your glasses checked for a defect.

    Look, in online marketing, getting the shortest name possible, while still remaining coherent makes for a good domain name.  The slapping of two words together is one of the oldest brainstorming tricks in the domain name book...

    I don't see how your "fact" contributes to your question. besides, facebook is not a combination of two words. facebook.com got its name from "facebook" a book that universities in the US would hand out to new students, it sort of is a directory that has photos and names of students.
