For those bitter social networkers… Hatebook!
While on facebook today (not that I’m ever on Facebook while working), I came across a post from a friend about something called Hatebook… an anti-social utility that disconnects you from the things YOU HATE.
Care to vent about that ex who’s now dating your nemesis or are you just a misanthrope who can’t stop complaining? This parody on Facebook appears to look and function much like Facebook, except with an evil twist for everything. Profiles even include an almost Nietzschean section entitled “Why I’m Better Than You!”
However, don’t play around with Hatebook too much if you are concerned about privacy. All messages are viewable by all other users, and there are no privacy controls. This is a good thing, in my opinion, as a social networking site focusing on hatred could attract the ‘wrong type’ of individuals. As such, transparency can help protect everyone involved.
There is one problem though. Instead of an entire networking platform based on griping, you can simply install Enemybook on Facebook and save yourself the time of setting up another account. Who me? Complain? Never.
