The latest in “chains” on Facebook are the “pay it forward”. Yes, like in the Haley Joel Osment movie but in real life. This phenomenon returns at the beginning of the year as a very curious initiative.
This is a message that users of the social network Facebook are sharing on their wall so that other friends can participate in the initiative. Friends who comment on this post will receive a small gift during the year from the user. Likewise, participating users must do the same, sharing the message on their profile.
Therefore, another five friends who comment on each other's status get involved in this game that will make “2016 be a special year.” Suggestions include Give a book, a ticket, pay a visit, something crafted, a postcard, a letter or any other gift
In this way the “chain of favors” becomes a chain of generosity. Thus, more than a “pay it forward” it seems like a game like the “invisible friend”.
The message posted by users who participate in the “pay it forward” begins like this:“To contribute to generating a little happiness this year I am going to participate in a initiative in the style of "pay it forward" the idea is that the first 5 people who comment on my status saying "I'm joining" will receive a surprise from me within a year from today.”
The famous “pay it forward” seems to be one of the trends of the moment on Facebook, at least at the beginning of the year. We will have to see if it continues and if users keep their word after participating in this interesting game.
