Fabulis Inevitably Becomes Porn Star Popularity Contest for Pierre Fitch

Was it to be expected? Fabulis, the new Yelp-Facebook-Twitter-LinkedIn gay men’s site from Jason Goldberg, which launched with the purpose of not being a place for sex and hooking up, has as its No. 1 (“Most Fabulis”?) member Pierre Fitch, the nom de plume of the porn star and producer.

Although Fitch’s profile is the barest a Faublis profile can be (name, one picture, and that’s it), securing popularity on a social networking site that’s devoted to voting folks up and down should be expected from someone like Fitch, who comes with a built-in fan base, like 7,000 Twitter followers and fans that number many times that.

I have a feeling Golberg’s team will figure out a way (see: change its algorithm) to elevate other more “respectable” members; his investors can’t be happy knowing, for the time being, their little web property that could is being pwned by a porn star.
