Possibly in an effort to prevent us from moving to their country when that guy from the Plaza lobby in Home Alone 2 is our president, two Canadians did a dangerous thing. They created Peeple.
Peeple, which launched yesterday, is "an app that allows you to recommend and be recommended by the people you interact with in your daily lives" in three ways: personally, professionally, and romantically. It has been marketed as "Yelp for people." Though no one is really on it, pretty much everyone is sure they already hate it. When the app was announced last fall, the entire world seemed to rise up and revolt. And so the founders pivoted slightly.
To be fair, there are some misconceptions being spread, most notably that any anonymous person can create a profile and go slander your pristine romantic reputation. As of now (in small font above the FAQ, Peeple has one of those terrifying qualifiers, which says they "reserve the right to change any features in their app now and in the future"), you need a Facebook profile that’s been active for six months and a cellphone to create a profile.
