Not me, of course. But this girl is showing some real entrepreneurial spirit:
I'll be your girlfriend on facebook for 10 days. I'm Cathy, a 23 year old student and I live in New York city. There's a second option by the way: If you want a few messages (3 max.) on your profile to make somone jealous that's also possible, just send me the message(s) and the facebook-link! byebye!x (I don't! do any promotional stuff!
This is probably a moral failing of mine -- well, one of many -- but I can't quite figure out what's wrong with this. I mean, I know somewhere deep down it's creepy and wrong, but I sort of think this kind of thing is inevitable. If our on-line personae are really just avatars in the massive multi-player online role-playing game called "Facebook," is this any different from being a more powerful wizard and upgrading your sword, or whatever. (You can tell that I don't play those games....but I am on Facebook.)
I love that she doesn't do any "promotional" stuff -- that's where she draws the line. She'll pretend to be your girlfriend, but she won't sell Red Bull.
So, a couple of questions for the business-minded: 1. Is this business scalable? And 2. Is it something we can all start a business doing?
