Instagram, Facebook, Foursquare and Twitter have meant that we often have a pretty good idea where our friends are.
A new app uses that data to create an ‘antisocial network ‘ letting users easily avoid people they are less keen to meet.
The Cloak app can warn when acquaintances are nearby – and even alert you if they venture perilously close.
It allows users to specify the contacts they really don’t want to run into.
The app then ‘scrapes’ Instagram and Foursquare to find out where they are – and alerts you if the come close.
‘Cloak lets you know where all your friends, ‘friends,’ and nonfriends are at all times so you never have to run into that special someone,’ the firm said.
‘Think of it as the antisocial network.’
Gotta get it.
