The Latest Facebook Trend: “Cash Mobs”!

Flash mob
Flickr User Artberri

You’ve probably heard about flash mobs, but what about ‘cash mobs’?

It’s an effort to help out local businesses and bring communities together, and it could be coming to a town (or a newsfeed) near you.

So what is it? Cash mobs are organized by either business owners or citizens. The organizer will tell participants to go to a certain local business and spend a certain dollar amount (For example, “Go to ABC Flower Shop on Main St. in Belmar and spend $20!”). That turns the business into both a shopping destination and a social event.

The purpose is to give a boost to businesses to stimulate the local economy.

It’s a pretty interesting idea.

Are cash mobs a good idea? Where would you like to see one? Comment below!
