Facebook 'Business' Cards Are Here

facebook-profile-card-hand-foodie.jpg
What do you get for the person who has everything, including a Facebook account? A Facebook "business" card, of course! We're not sure if these are more or less insufferable than the Facebook shower curtain (equally so, perhaps, but different?). On one hand, the point of Facebook is, we suppose, to network, so giving someone a card with your contact info on it instead of making them search through the "Jennifer Dolls" to try to find you in the bleary hours of the next day may be an efficiency-positive move. On the other hand, do you really want to proclaim your devotion to Mark Zuckerberg's social networking beast with such American Psycho devotion? What's the thickness of this card stock, anyway? (200,000 users will get them free -- otherwise, they start at $15 for 50.)

The cardmaking company, Moo, explains,

Working closely with the Facebook Timeline team, we translated their Cover Photo concept to our Business Card format by mirroring the fonts, layout and iconography of the Timeline....

Each pack will contain all your Cover Photos and each card will show your name, company or college, where you live as well as your Facebook URL, phone number and e-mail address. Also on the back of the card is space for you to add your own quotation or sentence about yourself. By default we pull in the first quote we find in your Favourite Quotations field but you can edit this to say whatever you like. Mine says "For my part I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move." - Robert Lewis Stevenson.

Moo makes some great products, and while it makes sense to offer "Facebook business cards," we can't vouch for whomever might use one. But, please, convince us otherwise. Would you offer someone your Facebook business card, emblazoned with your personal contact information and that eloquent quotation from your timeline (there are so many!) about, say, the delicious sandwich you just devoured or how, bitch please, no one's going to talk to you that way, even if they are your boss and/or mother-in-law? If someone offered you their Facebook business card, would you accept it -- or would you stomp away in horror and tweet about the experience mercilessly? What is the business of Facebook, if not to involve the passing of card stock, in the end?

As for the Facebook cards, the free ones, at least, which are capped at 5,000 daily, seem to be going like digital hotcakes.
