An app that shows you “girls around you” has gone bye-bye, pulled by the developers after so much controversy.
It uses location data from Foursquare and Facebook to show photos of women who are nearby.
HLN Digital Lifestyle Expert Mario Armstrong says the app definitely has privacy concerns, questionable overt sexual imagery AND is just “wrong.”
Professor of History and Gender Myths at Pasadena City College, Hugo Schwyzer, adds it enables creepy, dangerous behavior. He also takes on those who say women just shouldn’t “check-in” on apps.
Here’s our conversation from my 3pm newscast on HLN.
SHAUN: Definitely a creepy app, no matter how clever it was. As if women don’t have enough creepy guys stalking them already, let’s make it easier for stalkers to find women! smh
JEFF: People are being paranoid!
