Well, f*ck me twice on a Sunday.
I was googling Alicia Keys because I needed the name of her album, and came up with the news that her album… out on December 15th (on time for next YAM) can be listened to if you become a fan of Alicia Keys on Facebook. Now, never have I ever become a Fan of x-artist. I’ve joined their groups, but never became a fan… even of Yu. At least on Facebook. xD
Anyway, why am I talking about this? Because I opened the Alicia Keys page… read that I needed to become a fan, and I actually considered becoming one. After all, I can just stop being a fan — so that’s actually a pretty good campaign. One click away and you can stream Keys’ new album one week ahead of anyone. I’m sure there will be people, unlike me, who will click the button and listen to it. I mean, this actually made me consider… I was looking at the page for several seconds, when I usually just delete any Fan Page invitation.
I also just block most applications, unless I’m looking for it specifically.
