Brazilian Website Creating ‘Fake Facebook Girlfriends’ For A Fee

You think you’ve seen it all, and then you read an article about a company offering to create a fake girlfriend for you on Facebook. Yes, you read that correctly, creating fake girlfriends for people on Facebook.

Brazilian-based website NamoroFake.com will, for a fee, generate a fake Facebook profile for your made-up “girlfriend”, which includes various interactions with your own accounts such as comments and likes, as well as the all important relationship status.

Quite why you’d want to go to such lengths to convince your friends that you have a girlfriend is frankly beyond me… Surely after a while when none of your real-life friends have met her, and there are no photos of the happy couple together, they’d smell a rat and realise that you’re telling porkies? Either way, people are paying Namoro between $10 and $99 for varying levels of online interaction over different periods of time.

However, it remains to be seen how long a company boasting to create fake Facebook profiles can actually survive, given the fact that using a false name breaks Facebook’s terms of service. Booker Prize-winning author Salman Rushdie may have been victorious in getting his account reinstated after Facebook originally demanded that he use his legal given name – Ahmed Rushdie – but it is hard to see a company creating fake profiles for the express purpose of supporting a lie being given the same leniency.

  2. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
