On the hunt? Or just want to be around the fairer sex? A new iPhone app called Girls Around Me will broadcast their locations using Foursquare. Its the new form of stalking for sure. And its slightly creepy.
Girls Around Me will scan for women who have checked it on Foursquare, and when it finds the ladies, it will offer you their Facebook profiles, giving you more parameters to stalk them on.
Stanford law lecturer Elizabeth Stark said, "This would be a very different application if it didn't link back to Facebook, which is the treasure trove of information. With that link, this app could easily be a 'let's stalk women' app."
The app's made by a Russian company called SMS Services and since its so intrusive, we don't see Foursquare or Apple supporting it any longer soon.
Foursquare spokeswomen Laura Covington said, "This is a violation of our API policy, so we've reached out to the developer and shut off their API access." Regardless, one can still buy the app from the iTunes store.
