Looking for love this Valentine’s Day? Buy a Facebook girlfriend for only $5

Posted Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Forget wasting £5, or even £15, on an oversized novelty stuffed teddy this Valentine’s Day, even if it sings Unchained Melody when you push its paw. Dave Lee, of the BBC, found that for only $5 you can buy make-believe online love.

While conducting research, Lee came across a number of sites offering varying degrees off fake girlfriend services. After discovering Namoro Fake and Cloud Girlfriend couldn’t offer him the fabricated social media solicitude he was seeking, he turned to Google and happened upon Fiverr.

Fiverr is a US-based site-come-forum where people list things they are willing to do for $5 and after a quick search for “fake girlfriend”, Lee laid eyes on Sophia and the rest is history. Well, a whole week’s worth of history because that’s all the $5 gets you.

In addition, an organisation called ‘Cloud Girlfriend’ can provide lonely souls with the ‘change in relationship status’ that they so badly need and want during this difficult time of year. Cloud Girlfriend allows you to pick your ideal date from a list of possibilities – and then give them the dream-selection of attributes that would make any of your friends jealous.

Would you go to these lengths?

 

 

 


Wimborne Folk Festival revived by volunteers using social media

Posted Saturday, February 9th, 2013

“We couldn’t imagine Wimborne without the ‘Folkie'”, says Mike Carhart-Harris, part of the team which is reviving the Dorset town’s annual folk festival.

The music and dance event had been running since 1980, but in August the couple who ran it announced they were retiring due to financial reasons and the festival would end.

But a team of locals determined to organise a 2013 festival came together after a social media campaign.

A fundraising concert is the latest part of the efforts to ensure it happens.

A meeting was held in September to sound out if the goodwill towards the “Folkie” could be turned into a plan to revive the festival run by a new set of volunteers.

Planning a festival for up to 35,000 people in less than nine months would seem a daunting task. But with less than six months to go, a programme is in place and the show is going ahead from 7-9 June.
