From April 1st to April 30th, 2011, Dave Kim did everything that Facebook told him to do.
While the project began on April Fool’s Day, we assure you—it was no joke. Did you tell him to like something? Dave tried it out. Did you suggest a friend? Dave reached out in earnest. Did you invite him to an event? Dave was there.
My Best Friend Facebook Forever (My BFFF) was a month-long performance-experiment undertaken by Dave Kim and James Weissinger. Part of Little Berlin’s exhibition Very Amateur Society for Science and Technology (VASST.info), the project explored what it means to “do Facebook” all the way—to like every “like,” friend every “friend,” and yes, always hit “poke back.”
