Facebook app lets you follow your enemies
A new application for Facebook is letting you keep your friends close – but your enemies closer.
EnemyGraph is the new app that lets you create a list of enemies, including everything from people and groups you don’t like on social media.
EnemyGraph was created by a team at the University of Texas at Dallas - which included a professor, a graduate student and an undergrad student.
On his blog, Prof. Dean Terry says that while people online are connected by things they like – they’re also linked by things they don’t like. Nickelback, for example, comes to mind.
So while Facebook is quite good at finding and linking you up with things/people/places you and your friends like, it does nothing to connect you with the things you really don’t want to be linked to.
Who currently tops the enemies list? Rick Santorum, a Baptist church, Fox News and the largest anti-piracy group – the RIAA. Oh yeah, Nickelback isn’t far behind either.
Would you install this app to ‘enemy’ people, places and things on Facebook?
