Yes, This Exists
Just in case you're still struggling to figure out how to "meet new people online for casual encounters, flirting and relationships" via Facebook, or dare I say, Myspace, you'll be pleased to learn that www.fuckbook.com will launch tomorrow with the above mission statement.
While Facebook employs the vague "poke" in order to test the waters of a possible relationship, Fuckbook goes all the way by using the endearingly creepy "wink" in order to woo possible mates. On Fuckbook, you'll be happy "to find other like-minded people, that share the same interests and conceivabilities of a relationship." Hmm, I wonder what types of similar people I'll be delighted to meet on Fuckbook? Certainly the types without pesky real jobs where their employer could monitor their web searches.
Fuckbook looks much like any other social networking site, except for its garish pink color and search parameters that will allow me to look for an Asian female between 18 to 99 years old whose fetishes include furries, voyeurism, tantric sex, and "prefer not to say" (uh oh -- that can't be good).
Final Word: Maybe I'm behind the times because I don't tweet, but for now, I think I'll stick to Facebook. As appetizing as Fuckbook's groundbreaking features appear, I'm just a little worried about the clientele I'll be winking at.
