Line is a free calling/messaging app that's popular in Japan, Thailand and Taiwan.
When I first heard about people paying actual money for virtual "stickers" to send to friends in chats, I thought it was ridiculous.
ME: People pay for these?
CAROL: Sure. But also people our age.
ME: Do you know anyone who's paid for these?
CAROL: Harry has.
[throws chair through glass window in amazement]
Harry is a normal, grown man who is a successful editor in the film industry. But he is also someone who secretly sends his friends little virtual stickers that he paid real money for.
I drew a set of stickers so I could use them to spam friends who I forced to download the Line app.
