Question of the day

Oct 02, 2015

Our last question asked: What is the terrifying new app being billed as the "Yelp for people" and what does it do? It's called "Peeple," and it enables your acquaintances to "review" you, whether you want them to or not.

Congratulations to Brian Smith for being the very first to answer that correctly (and his exact response was "...but Facebook isn't new. Oh its Peeple, where you can rate other people"). Honorable mentions go out to Andrew E Herrera (who also invoked Facebook by replying, "Because the Facebook 'thumbs down' isn't enough"), Ashleigh Bones (who realizes "Peeple will let my sister, boss and ex boyfriends tell the world how crazy I am. Yay!!"), Maureen MacGregor (who predicts "it gives mean girls the ultimate social platform for their important work"), Margo Howard (who suggests "They might as well call it 'Calling all trolls. Come one, come all'"), Edirin Oputu (who observes that the app "wants us to rate people as we would restaurants and shops. Goodness knows why"), Sara Kay (whose take was that it "lets people judge--sorry--'review,' ACTUAL PEOPLE, with star ratings. Sick"), Becky A-S (who shrugs and bills it as "so they can now see what we used to just do behind their back"), Hollywood HighlandsSam GronnerMark Gibbs (who adds "Lawyers, start your engines!"), Waterfield Designs (who suggests "more like Yeepers Creepers. This is not a good idea!"), Judyth MermelsteinMia Dand (who adds "cuz trolling, hateful tweets, Facebook posts just wasn't enough") and Ranjeet Singh for all getting that exactly right, as well.

As for today's question, here it is: According to the Wall Street Journal, what's "really hot on dating sites" right now?
