Now Facebook wants to tell you how to Dress

Here’s a scenario. You’re spending an afternoon shopping with a friend, browsing the racks while chatting happily to each other; catching up, giving advice, asking them if they think this & that would look good on you… you know, things that friends do.

Sounds like a nice little afternoon doesn’t it?

Wrong!! Facebook is better than your real friends and can give you way better shopping advice than you could ever get from actual human contact.

In a shadow of things to come, high street retailer C&A in Brazil, has launched  what  they’re calling FashionLike clothing hangers in their stores.

In a nutshell, each hanger displays the amount of Facebook Likes a garment has received on the online store.

So kind of like with real friends, but not, if Facebook says they like it, you should probably just go ahead and like it too. And if the Facebook community hasn’t taken a liking to a dress you think you like, remember that Facebook is the pillar of taste and knowledge in fashion, so you should probably just put that sh*t back on the rail.
