Diary:Ebay users get to put a price on friendship

Be the first to comment

Ever wished your friends would remember your birthday, or not be so tight-fisted that they never buy you a birthday present, or just let you know what they're up to?

Maybe you need a good deodorant or you are just one of life's natural saddos.

But fear not - help is at hand. Neill Garfield, a new-media specialist at COI Communications, is selling his friendship on Ebay. To the highest bidder goes the offer of two text messages a week, a ten-minute phone call a month, a birthday card with a £15 gift and photos to show any other friends.

Garfield has promised to give the money he raises to charity. However, social inadequates are proving elusive; when Campaign last checked, bidding stood at £10.



Only £53 for 3 months

Includes every print & iPad edition, plus full access to Campaign online and other Brand Republic sites.
