"Peeple" - Yelp for Rating Humans

[ Edited ]

Do you think this app, which rates people, is a good Idea?  I wouldn't use it.

I hope the backlash against this prevails.  What an awful idea.

Yikes!  I agree - bad idea.  The internet has gotten brutal enough.  This, IMO, is a bridge too far.

I read an article about it and it's developer, Julia Cordray, on the N.Y. Times site.

Unfortunately, the Internet already has a rating, and a berating, of people. I see no reason to quantify this misery any further.

It's horrible.  There are so many vulnerable people out there, especially teenagers, and so many bullies.

It will take social media to a whole new moronic level and its creator is a Certifiable Idiot IMO.  It INVITES bullying.  I understand the purpose is to give good feedback about people.  

 

Right.

Horrible!  I am pretty sure the rating will be mostly negative.

 

This will take bullying to an even lower new level.Woman Sad
