You must have heard Rent-A-Car , but how about Rent-A-Friend ?
As I was digging through the newer aspects of Social Engineering - likes what's after twitter, facebook, linkdn, lotus connections, etc ? And my lazy reseach came across this concept called Rent-A-Friend. At first glance I had a smile on my face , but well most of us did when we first heard of twitter, facebook and likes. One may get the feeling that this may be similar to dating sites or various matrimony sites .. nopes it is not ..neither it looks like a Call X like concept .
Then, What is it ?
RentAFriend.com is a website that allows you to rent local Friends from all over the United States and Canada. You can rent a local Friend to hang out with, go to a movie or restaurant with, someone to go with you to a party or event, someone to teach you a new skill or hobby, or someone to show you around an unfamiliar town.
Well, it reminds me of the movie "The Wedding Date" ...now that movie did make some $$$ .. only time will tell how far this one will go...folds of Social Engineering !
