Earlier this morning a new app launched that is taking the world by storm. It’s called Famous, it’s only playable by invitation, it’s addicting and I’ve personally witnessed it slow down and then crash (very temporarily) from what I can only assume is an onslaught of players trying to get in the game.
Famous is the app Stolen, reborn. The object of the game is to become the biggest fan of various Twitter accounts. The more popular the Twitter account, the more expensive it is. The in-game currency is hearts (which you can of course buy for real-world money). But it’s easy enough to earn hearts if you know what you’re doing. I went from 10,000 hearts to over 1,000,000 hearts in just a little over an hour. Here’s how:
To ear a buttload of hearts in Famous, go to the new tab. Start buying (let’s face it, that’s what this is) Twitter profiles when they are cheap and let them sell for a decent price. Repeat. That’s it. Play for awhile and learn what the most you should pay for a profile is. That’s basically the secret. You can get loads of hearts off of no-namer profile just joining for the simple reason that they are the most affordable profiles. Just don’t pay too much for them to avoid getting stuck with them. I’ve been seeing some no-name profiles reach up past 100,000 hearts — easily — in all of the madness.
The game is still new enough that I’ve briefly owned several high-profile Twitter accounts including Product Hunt, Hiten Shaw and others. I still own Yo (which cost me a pretty 340,015 hearts). I also got stuck with a few profiles I bid too high on… oops. Maybe they’ll eventually sell. My goal is to buy a famous profile for a few million hearts by the end of the day. I’ll keep you updated.
Let me know if you want to see a video of how to earn hearts quickly.
At the end of the day this is sort of like a stock market for Twitter profiles except the stock prices never drop.
