Listen to the podcast while reading the post.
A girlfriend of mine shared a post on Facebook last night. Her post read “Brilliant!”. She had just posted an article about a new Facebook application called ‘Bang with Friends’. Yes,! Bang with friends as in have sex with them! This app was invented by a small group of clever university students in just a few hours & it’s fast becoming one of the most popular apps on FB.
So, how does it work? Well, once you authorize it, you can select people in your circle of friends you would like to sleep with. You do this by clicking a “down to bang” option associated to that person. Your selections are anonymous unless the other person has also flagged your name in which case you have a ‘perfect match’. Brilliant….right?
If my answer were ‘wrong”, would you call me a prude? With all the talk about privacy surrounding Facebook, this has got to be the most risky & racy app around. Can you just imagine what would happen if your list of favorite hotties got out? Not to mention how offended friends could get if they chose you but you didn’t choose them! This app might actually have the power to break your friendship with a big bang!
On a scale of one to ten, how dicey do you think this whole concept is? Do you think curiosity will kill more than a few cats?
