Need an imaginary girlfriend on Facebook to hide the fact that you are alone? Cloud Girlfriend will do all the legwork (a profile, photos, wall posts, conversation, etc.). I recommend making yours a marine biologist/ballet dancer who lives in Canada. AOL News reports:
That’s what startup Cloud Girlfriend promises, although your friends on Facebook will never know it. The new Internet company helps guys who aren’t ready to admit, at least online, that they don’t have a significant other.
The new service allows users to create the perfect girlfriend who will write on your Facebook wall and otherwise make her ghostly presence known through social media.
Cloud Girlfriend has yet to officially launch, but the site is already generating overwhelming interest, advising visitors to “register early to get in line.”
According to the site, signing up is easy as:
“Step 1: Define your perfect girlfriend. Step 2: We bring her into existence. Step 3: Connect and interact with her publicly on your favorite social network. Step 4: Enjoy a public long distance relationship with your perfect girl.”
Similar services have prospered in Japan, [says] Technology Review’s Christopher Mims.
