Via Washington Monthly‘s Ed Kilgore, a Facebook app for the aggressively aggrieved:
(CNN) — To the dismay of some, Facebook has no “Dislike” button. But a new application for the social network may prove to be the next-best thing.
The app, EnemyGraph, encourages Facebook users to list people or places or things they dislike, then share them with like-minded haters as a way of bonding. (“You think Crocs are hideous? I think Crocs are hideous! Let’s be buds!”)
“Most social networks attempt to connect people based on affinities: you like a certain band or film or sports team, I like them, therefore we should be friends,” writes EnemyGraph co-creator Dean Terry in a blog post. “But people are also connected and motivated by things they dislike. Alliances are created, conversations are generated, friendships are stressed, stretched, and/or enhanced.”…
Users of the app appear to largely be left-of-center politically. Near the top of the enemies’ list are GOP candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, Fox News, conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. President Barack Obama is the sole Democrat on the list…
Yeah, or else the Talibangelicals, fReichtards & Banana Republicans just haven’t gotten the blast fax from Rush and the AFP yet. As a non-Facebook-user, I really really hope this app takes off big time. Given enough fellow haterz to play with, we might never see Veritas or its fellow trolls around here again.
