This is pure comedy! Fawk Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and Instagram — our new favorite website is an “anti” social media network that helps you steer clear of bugaboos.
Via NYDailyNews reports:
A new “antisocial media” website aims to keep users as far away from their friends as possible.
“Hell is Other People” uses Foursquare to pinpoint pals’ check-ins on a map, then calculates “optimally distanced locations” where you’ll be able to dodge them.
“I actually really hate social media,” said creator Scott Garner, who tests the safe zones in a video about the project. “I had to sign up for a social media site to talk to people to get them to be my friends on that site, so I could avoid them.”
Garner’s new site — more of a social experiment than an actual business venture — could come in handy for introverts seeking downtime or anyone who simply needs a social media break.
But there’s a catch: The project works only if friends frequently check into Foursquare.
See but who wants to “friend” people they don’t like? SMH. This technology is faulty already.
