The “Yelp for people”
Peeple is a mobile application that allows people to leave recommendations for other people based on professional, personal, and romantic relationships.
The thing that brought our attention about this app is the fact that is shockingly close to a famous Black Mirror episode called “Nosedive”.
Peeple’s own website says you can still write “recommendations” (i.e. reviews, but not necessarily positive ones) for anyone who’s not on the app, then choose to invite that person to join Peeple.
In other words, even if you’re not participating, someone could write your review. Sure, that review might not be public, but it exists in a digital format on the company’s servers.
