A quick thought:
Facebook app, titled, say, "Doppleganger," that allows you to friend people (who also have the app) whose faces look just like yours.
Would utilizes licensed facial recognition software, in combination with facebook's rudimentary facial recognition already in place since july 1st (article), which locates a face but not intricate features. Facebook Statistics says there are 500 million active members. 1% at 1$, imagine!
Thoughts? Somebody take the idea and roll with it!
