Meet the Guy With the Largest Number of Facebook Friends

How many friends do you have on Facebook’s popular social media platform? Studies say that the average person between 18 and 28 years old has around 300, while older users have around 200. I personally have around 300 as well, but this guy from Melbourne would really make true Facebook users jealous.

Justin Tayler, a nightclub promoter, has reached the 5000 friend cap, making him one of the most popular people on Facebook. He says that people constantly communicate with him and leave likes/shares and other dozens of notifications, so it makes it very difficult for him to leave his account unchecked for a long time.

The guy started out as a PE teacher at a university and created his account back in 2009. He also had around 300 friends at first, but once he switched careers and became a nightclub worker, his friends list started to grow exponentially. His passion for nightclubs made him a very popular figure, having people adding him to their friends list to see what events he is attending.

The whole Facebook hype also brought him some business opportunities too. Tayler found out about a 17-year old who was throwing underage parties and making up to $1200 in entry fees. Of course, when you mix underage with parties, you don’t get something that authorities would agree with. So Taylor struck a deal with the kid and now he can still sale his tickets, but under adult supervision.

Bitcoin ATM’s Pop Up Around Melbourne, Australia

A few months ago, there was one currency on everyone’s lips – Bitcoin. People were scrambling to make their own Bitcoin mining machines, Reddit users developed their own currency called Dogecoin and our parents and grandparents become more technology-confused than  ever before.

Since the hype has died down, I’ve just received reports from a friend of mine that Bitcoin ATM’s have just started popping up in the Central CBD of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The image you’re looking at above is taken from the famous “Melbourne Central” shopping center and train station, allowing users to exchange, buy and sell Bitcoin all from a handy kiosk located in the middle of the hustle-and-bustle. Unfortunately a higher resolution image became impossible when Facebook Messenger was utilized as the method of communication.

We’ve seen more Bitcoin payment options pop up around the globe, with SpendBitcoins.com being developed solely to support new-age business’ supporting this advancement in technology. Some of the companies notable from this list include that of NewEgg and Expedia.

Will we see this type of currency make it into the ‘mainstream’ market? It’s really hard to say. But it’s certainly nice to see a ‘global currency’ give it a red hot go. Exchange rates are the bane of any well-traveled business person or backpacker.

Have you seen a Bitcoin ATM around your area? Let us know, we’d love to start tracking them!
