/// Poke! I Choose You to Be My Seatmate.
Airlines, you’ve gone and done it again. First it was the baggage fees, and charging for legroom. Then it was denying us our Words with Friends . Now, the New York Times reports, it’s bringing Facebook and LinkedIn to the seat-selection process , so you can gather more information on customers … I mean, pair up fliers with similar interests. Soon enough, we’ll hear people’s no-longer-serendipitous tales of purposely meeting their soul mate, or maybe selling their company to the passenger in seat 24E. I’ve got one word for you, airlines, or really, one word that’s used twice to create another single word: GoGo.
Poke! I Choose You to Be My Seatmate.
