Can You Sell Your Facebook Profile?


Yesterday, there was a lot of buzz about how the RocketBoom founder put his Twitter account up for sale on eBay. When I last checked, the account with 1,500 followers was going for $1,125. How about those that have twice as many friends on Facebook? Technically, selling your profile would theoretically violate Facebook’s terms of service since it would be a misrepresentation of the person using the profile.

Then again, you could switch the email address and photo and it wouldn’t be that person’s profile anymore.
