Man flied 5,000 miles to make Facebook friend
A Belgian student travelled more than 5,000 miles to Austin, Texas, to meet a stranger after Facebook suggested they should be friends.
Victor Van Rossem, was curious when Neal D Retke, 49, popped up as a 'suggested friend' as they had no obvious connection aside from one mutual acquaintance.
After browsing through Mr Retke's pictures, Mr Van Rossem, 25, from Ghent, became intrigued by the artist's eclectic interests.
He set off on his travels with his friend Bram, who took a video camera to document the adventure. The pair studied film together at university.
They spent a week searching for Mr Retke, scouring the city of Austin by putting posters up on every street and asking people in the street if they knew him.

The pair even wore t-shirts carrying the slogan 'Neal D Retke for President!' in the hope they would help them find him.
Through Facebook, they were able to spot places that he visited on a regular basis and set about visiting them.
"We went to a couple of them and I think the fourth or the fifth was the bookstore where we eventually found someone who knew him. The whole search lasted about a week," said Mr Van Rossem.
The film makers spent a month in Texas. It took them a week to find Neal, and they spent the next three weeks getting to know him.
"What I did was maybe a bit extreme, not the usual way of dealing with it, but in the end Facebook was right. I am really happy I met Neal, we had a connection, had a lot of fun and I consider him a friend now," he added.
