The Facebook blog currently reports that 150 million people are using Facebook and in the past year 6.6 billion friend requests were made in 2008. But don’t you feel at times, you have too many friends on your facebook account? People that you rarely know, you met once at a party and never saw again, that “friend” at primary school or university who you never spoke to, but all of a sudden wants to be your friend?
So Burger King has decided to flip the script on this. Delete 10 of your facebook friends and get a free whopper! I like this promotion because its poking fun about how we’re all adding friends and getting a bit overboard with the friend requests ( I mean 6.6 billion – that is a lot you know).
I can’t believe BurgerKing in the US is actually doing this promotion!
You install the Burger King sacrifice widget on your facebook page, get rid of ten friends and then get a burger coupon.
Suddenly I feel the urge to clean house. Mathematically speaking, if I delete 40 friends does that mean 4 whoppers? No, because its only one coupon per facebook account. D’oh! Apparently 180k friends have already been “sacrificed”. Are you next?
And I would do anything for a whopper, because I love’em …..so I might start reviewing my list of friends!
I’m out like sacrificing your friends for a free burger,
Oh no it looks like they took this down. Do you think FB gave them some slack for it ? Why on earth would the take down a domain so many people had linked to unless there was some sort of legal issue.
I liked the promotion too.
