Cloud girlfriend

leave a comment »

There’s an article that someone actually posted on a friend of mine’s Facebook page who just broke it off with his girlfriend.
The article is about the “cloud girlfriend.” the Cloud girlfriend is a computerized fake girlfriend that will interact with you on Facebook or any other social networking site so none of your friends on line would know that you don’t have a real girlfriend. with the cloud girlfriend you also get to pick your “perfect girl”

I found this article a little scary for one because it kind of goes to show how much influence social networking has on people’s lives. some people feel the need to fit in by making up a fake girlfriend to put onto their Facebook page. this also shows that although our generation looks to Facebook a lot to find out information about people that you really have to take it with a grain of salt because none of it may be true.

this article was also interesting because we were talking about the cloud in class today and it’s link to amazon
