Looking at FunHi, I don't even get what it is. I must be getting old. The Wired article explains it better. Or at least they talk about the more interesting feature: the ability to give others virtual gifts that cost real money. So, first of all, FunHi is an online community and hangout place. It is social networking software. It seems to target people around 20 who like to talk like gangstas all the time.

There is a gift store, which allows people to buy gifts for people they like. Which mostly means that guys will try to attract the attention of the girls who've uploaded the most enjoyable bikini pictures. The gifts are simply a small GIF file with a picture of something. Like flowers or a private jet. The gifts start at 1 cent. And there's nothing wrong with the gifts that cost 1 or 5 cents. But, somehow, the social dynamic of showing a list of who gave what gifts to what person, and them being listed in reverse price order, means that some people will be very motivated to buy the expensive gifts. Like the $14.99 jet plane or the $30 credit card. Remember, they're just GIF pictures. You don't even download them. And, remember, you pay for them with a real credit card.

Now, why didn't I think of that? I must be too honest.

I want to sell them banner clicks on my blog. Virtual clicks and virtual pageviews. Do I have to upload an actual .gif of someone clicking through to their ad, or just a .gif of a .gif?

Better yet, just sell them pictures of happy customers. Make them pay, but keep the picture on your site, so you can sell it to a bunch of other people too. Or, make all of them outbid each other to get the picture of the happiest looking customers.

Typically the tragedy through Pakistan continues to worsen for the reason that relief necessities and solution fall far in immediate need of what should be used. More solution is desperately needed being the potential for innumerable fatalities gets started to loom.
