I have a question ...
Since when, is this new Culture of "Raising Friends for Sale, on the Facebook" being promoted on the Net ?
Reckon its New Nursery Rhymes for the gullible.
Long time back I read a paperback, titled "Games People Play" ... The author was quite rightly of the opinion that a person's social and physical attitudes reflect the personality individuals desire and "Play" out as Games. One of the Attitudes he mentioned was the "Kick me" attitude.
Friendship, dear lady, is something precious and a noble human Institution: making it a part of Consumerism, even as a Game, promoted on the Commercialized Net ... sends out a very dangerous signal ... where Dollars are being promoted as more important than human relations.
In the Next stage, people will be playing other Consumerism related Games where they will be asking other players to "Raise a Mother's love, for Sale" on the facebook !
