I am going to feature a Facebook app every Friday—“Facebook Friday.” (An evangelist never rests.) Today’s app is Celeb Heads from Fafarazzi.com.
Celeb Heads enables people to send their friends free celebrity heads (also known as “fafa heads”). These heads mark a mood, attitude, event, trait, or feature of a friend. There are currently sixty-two different celeb heads with different themed messages ranging from “Hello” to “You need rehab.” The celebs used so far go from Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears to Jake Gyllenhaal and David Beckham.
You pick a celeb head, type in a personal message, and select your privacy option. The recipient will receive an email notification with a link to view their celeb head. The celeb heads will also be featured on his or her profile in the Celeb Heads profile box. Click here to install it. You may think this type of app (“Send celebrity heads?”) is crazy, but this is the nature of Facebook apps, so we all need to get used to it. :-)
By the way, Fafarazzi.com
I’m a developer but I enjoy reading your blog and use your Marketing tips when I’m facing customers.
Anyway, I just looked at your profile on Facebook and you’ve got impressive 1485 friends in it. Do you know all those people personally?
You are right. These lightweight goofy apps are currently the predominate nature of facebook apps at the current time.
Lindsay Lohan’s should say… “I need another drink!”

I have a quick suggestion on Truemors but didn’t find a feedback page in there. So I am leaving it here. When someone tries to make a post, there is a field for name and email address but there is no field for website. Why would people post in any site, if they don’t have a return for that.. For example, in Techcrunch, if you manage to make a comment, you are sure to get hits on the site linked to your name, even after a couple of months after making the comment. You might want to add that feature to Truemors. Or if you had a reason not to do that, then it’s fine…
Fun little app I suppose, yet also one more reason why Facebook can be an absolute waste of precious time!
You may think this type of app (“Send celebrity heads?”) is crazy, but this is the nature of Facebook apps, so we all need to get used to it. :-)
I don’t understand this. Why should we get used to it. If the apps serve no real benefit aside from being crazy (or cute, strange, etc.) then shouldn’t we just ignore them.
I guess my real question is, “What’s the real point of Facebook Friday?” Are you showing us budding entrepreneurs ideas we can use to start a business? Because if so, I’d love some insight into why you think this app is worth showing more than the thousands of other apps.
I love your blog, but if you’re going to do a Facebook Friday I would much rather read about apps that can make Facebook a more useful and efficient machine for me to use in my entrepreneurial endeavors. Not to just waste time being silly.
(Or maybe I just need to take a nap.)
So you probably think that MySpace is a joke too, right? And Club Penguin. And Gaia. And Nick Toons. And Sponge Bob.
Pretty cute Facebook app…but why in the world does it say “ROLE MODEL” beside Lindsay Lohan? ;)
hi guy, I can not believe!!!! I wrote one of your books. Is that you???? How small world is. I am Serb from Serbia, city of Novi Sad…
I wrote your book Selling the dream.
Sorry for my broken english. I learn it on my own, by films and books…
I am interesting in marketing and other stuff. Please answer if you recieve this mail, and this comment………….. You are excellent…
Greetings from Serbia….
Not too keen on this facebook app., but I am a big fan of facebook. Did you see the story over at TechCrunch about the source code exposure of Facebook’s main page?
What was this blog about, again? Sir, aren’t you a bit old to spend time blogging on silly new little applications? Wasn’t there a time you wrote about making and managing money?
Trust me, if you create a Facebook app with hundreds of thousands of users, you’ll make money. You can run your own ads in Facebook.
Since Facebook opening the API, we can have great deal of new applications.

I made a family presentation of what web 2.0 means to me in hoping some of you share the same “illness.” http://www.oursheet.com
Love to be at this time.
I’m just wondering if you need to ask for celebrity’s consent to use her/his head like that? :) Of course, it plays out nicely for a celebrity by increasing publicity, but what is the legal viwpoint on this?
Here is a great example for a Facebook app, if it is not already exists, a celebrity’s hair style simulation:
