New Peeple App Works Like Yelp… But For Humans

New Peeple App Works Like Yelp… But For Humans

Nowadays, you can rate restaurants, products, movies, music, and businesses with just a few clicks. So what’s next? How about an app that lets you rate people. Well… it has happened. A new app called Peeple let’s users rate other people from 1 to 5 stars. The company’s co-founder stated, “the app is meant to have integrity and be a place where people post positive reviews of others, rather than being a forum where people are bullied and shamed.” As you can probably guess, it is integrated with Facebook. Despite the fact that the app’s developers have built mechanisms to prevent bullying, this just seems like a bad idea to me. It will be interesting to see if it catches on.
