Need A Friend? Ryan Fitzgerald Is There For You

A young man in Cambridge, Mass., posts his cell phone number on YouTube, encouraging anyone in the world to ring him up.

In a world where trying to secure personal information is a non-stop, Herculean task for some, a young man in Massachusetts has decided to give his out to anyone who wants it. Ryan Fitzgerald of Cambridge posted a YouTube video where he gave out his cell phone number, encouraging folks around the globe to give him a call to talk about anything on their mind.

In response to his unusual offer, over five thousand people attempted to bend Ryan's ear their way last weekend. By Sunday evening, however Ryan worried that with the loss of his free weekend minutes his wireless bill would skyrocket--but he committed himself to calling back everyone who had reached out to touch him -- telephonically, of course.
