AM I beautiful? I will let you know in 48 hours.
Stumbled across Richard Jinman’s post, The ugly face of social networking, about the site that caters only to beautiful people (he definitely is NOT beautiful), and I just couldn’t resist engaging in a bit of social comparison myself.
So on I logged to www.beautifulpeople.com and had a look around. This is what it is about:
BeautifulPeople.com is an exclusively beautiful community, founded for the purpose of creating personal and professional relationships.
BeautifulPeople is the first community of its kind. To become a member, applicants are required to be voted in by existing members of the opposite sex. Members rate all new applicants over a 48 hour period based on whether or not they find the applicant ‘beautiful’. Should applicants secure enough positive votes from members, they will be granted a full membership to the BeautifulPeople Network.
The vote is fair and democratic.
BeautifulPeople does not define beauty it simply gives an accurate representation of what society’s ideal of beauty is.
Applicants can upload a complimentary profile. They are able contact members while being rated thereby giving insight into the character behind the appearance.
BeautifulPeople simply removes the ‘first hurdle’ as every member is exactly that; ‘Beautiful’ as deemed so by their peers.
Since it is all about peer assessment, you get pleas on your profile page (and though my beauty is yet to be validated, I do get to vote). Sample these:
Hi sexy people… would appreciate it if you would rate me…
Visit me and vote… and I will do the same for you.
I have got a lovely bunch of coconuts… diddle diddledeee!
