It began life as a social experiment but we made the mistake of inviting too many neurotic personalities and down right mental headcases. So after much soul searching I decided to pull the plug on the site and have so far come up with nothing to take it’s place (except for this blog).
It is now time to start the social psychological experiment, this time I am doing it for the good of my course work. I want to have a sample of around 100 people from a wide demographic however there are some requirements I will need to meet in order for this experiment to work. I need a couple of ready made real life friend groups to join to monitor their interaction with the complete strangers. I have a feeling that the individuals in friend groups will not be able to splinter off into another group for fear of real life rejection.
I have run this kind of experiment before but it ended up a money making scheme and went slighlty Pete Tong when we sourced our members from a very crazy website.
I expect nothing from this site and don’t think it will ever get as popular as the original sofa site, but who knows just watch this space for development updates.
The site will not be residing on this domain name for fear of the loonies making an un-welcome return, however if you are interested just use the contact me link and request the new address.
