☆  chat site チャットサイト


My Japanese friend living in Adelaide told me a funny story about a part-time job she had when she was younger and living in Tokyo. She worked for a chat site company! Her job was to pretend to be the girl in the profile and reply to the people messaging her!! Sometimes she was chatting with up to ten different customers at once!

I feel sorry for the people who were connecting with her via the chat site; maybe they would have thought they were chatting with a real person, not a paid employee. But at the same time, I can’t help but be impressed with the ingenious business idea that the person who created the chat site had.

The Internet really has made anything possible! Ha ha!
