This past summer, Facebook helped reunite a mother and daughter who hadn't seen each other in 48 years.
Now the social-networking site is being credited with reconnecting long-lost sisters.
Tanija Delic, 88, and Hadija Talic, 82, spent the last 72 years apart. The Bosnian sisters were separated from each other in 1941 as they fled their hometown during WWII. Talic, then 11, got lost in the escape and was taken in by an orphanage.
"After the war, people were telling me all kinds of things," Talic told the Nezavisne Novine daily. "Some were saying that my family was killed, others that they moved to the US. I lost any hope that I would see any of them again."
