What Would You Promote for $5?

Billfold pal Jon Custer spotted this from a friend in his Facebook feed:

Apparently, you can get a $5 Amazon credit by posting a Facebook message containing your thoughts about a car. I don’t have any thoughts about this car. Would I post something on Facebook anyway in exchange for $5? I would not, but others are willing to do so. Also this is effective advertising, because look: We are now talking about this campaign.

I would promote almost anything. Seriously. Make me an offer. I am a man devoid of shame.

@EvanDeSimone Try to do it on a medium where I don’t follow you. (Just kidding; I kind of want you to try it and report back.)

@ThatJenn I have always wanted to be a total sellout.

I would totally do this (I may when I get home from work, in fact). There’s nothing in the terms/conditions that says the post has to be visible to my friends, so I can set the app privacy to “Only Me,” collect the $5, spend it and delete the post. It’s probably the least annoying thing on FB right now anyway.

@Jenn@twitter Oooh, brilliant!

@Jenn@twitter Plus, do they really monitor the content to make sure it’s positive? I would post some sort of backhanded diss about the car and take the 5.

I’ve done this with Amazon on Twitter for free music which alleviates some of my torrenting guilt.

I would do this for significantly more money; I do have some pride.

“Madam, we’ve already established that. Now we are haggling about the price.”

Recently in real life, I’ve talked with TWO friends about how much we like the newly redesigned Ford Fusion. Discrete conversations. This sounds like a joke but it isn’t.
