Advertising: Whopper Sacrifice

A great viral advertising idea. For every 10 (virtual) friends you defriend at Facebook you get a free Whopper from Burger King (U.S. Residents only).

Finally someone is putting a price tag to virtual friendship (1/10 of a burger – xxx calories, xxx USD) and a way to bring all these SEO spammers to a better use. So far more than 12,000 friends have been un-friended.

Interestingly they have chosen Facebook and not, for example, MySpace. Maybe because they want to sell some Burgers as well.

While Facebook is expecting annual revenues of about $150 million this year, most likely the very high price is also related to a competition between rivals Google and Microsoft to buy a stake in the company
