Would you defriend 10 FB friends for a free Whopper?


Although companies using social media to promote their products is really nothing new and, of course, Facebook is the pinnacle of social media these days so third-party apps from every company and their dog have really taken off… but this is something new.

Burger King in the States has a new application where you get the choice to defriend 10 of your friends and get a free Whopper in return. Interested? Think you can get away with a silent and cowardly defriending without your former friends knowing? Not so. The app actually makes sure they find out by sending them a nice little message informing them of the choice you’ve made.

I’m pretty hungry right now and looking at these whopper pics isn’t doing my conscience any good, I should probably go offline before I do something stupid…

    yeah dude I know hey. We all have those random people that add us that we have no idea who they are so it’s a good opp to clean up and get a free whopper… well it was, it’s been shut down as carmen said above. my general policy on random ppl adding me on FB who i’ve never met is if its a pretty girl she gets a yes 😀
