Another evil platform, like Ashley Madison. Evil people making money and fame off of ruining people's lives.

I wonder what our society is going to look like in 20 years. These are the people that are taking care of us when we age. That is a scary thought.

If one of the founders needs an app to decide whom to trust with her kids, she needs to buy a brain first.

But but but, the ONLY thing that matters is how we are perceived on social media.

Yes, you can be rated even if you don't opt-in and your profile cannot be removed.



They gon' get sued. The potential for abuse when it comes to feuding neighbors or angry-ex's lashing is incredible.

Oh, the irony.

Yeah apparently she isn't as much a fan of feedback as she seems to imply.

Inspired by Peeple, I'm working on a new app that tells strangers where you are at all times. What a great way to meet new friends!

This app is a good representation of everything that is wrong with modern pop culture.

You guys, they aren't marketing the app they are marketing THEMSELVES. I doubt there is an app at all, the outrage is being stoked because that's what people do to get noticed these days. I don't think any of this is what it looks like and I'm just waiting for the "gotcha".

If we keep going down this road, think Purge. Very sad.
