TERRIFYING but clever Take This Lollipop makes you want to quit Facebook right now

take-this-lollipop.jpgWe’ve really scared ourselves over at Shiny Shiny this morning, as we’ve just linked our Facebook profiles up to the Take This Lollipop website.

After seeing a link on The Next Web claiming we’d be scared (of something to do with Facebook?! Yeah right) we decided to click away and what followed was a very clever, very creepy insight into just how much information we share online.

We don’t want to ruin it for you, so try Take This Lollipop yourself now…

According to The Next Web, no one’s sure whether it’s affiliated with any kind of movie promotion, but wow it’d be effective if it was.

Yes, it’s only a website which has hooked itself up to my Facebook account and has dragged in a few photos, but I don’t know if it’s the fact I watch far too many scary and disturbing movies or the fact I just have a rather nervous disposition but wow it FREAKED ME OUT.

The fact it’s finished and has left me with an hour countdown has also left me feeling a little uneasy… 53 minutes and counting…

    Take This Lollipop plays on the fact that many people underestimate the power of social networks and the information that can be obtained from them, connecting to your Facebook account to play through a scene where a creepy man spying and tracking you.

    I’ve just taken the Lollipop, you’re right it’s pretty freaky but 100% harmless. I stupidly closed the window at the end before the hour countdown was finished, what happened when it got to zero?

    This is a very interesting piece of media showcasing how advertisers will reach targetted pre profiled people in future. Imagine sitting at home and watching via your next gen smart TV the latest movie only for each piece of blank space to have advertising specifically targeted at you.
