Do you like being stalked?

Here's an app for you. It hires someone to stalk you all day.


http://www.engadget.com/2016/02/15/follower-app-performance-art-project/

During the predetermined day, someone will ogle your every move "following, observing, appreciating each moment, without interfering." At the end of the day, the app will let you know when you're no longer being watched by sending a photo taken during the ordeal. In fact, that's the only contact you have with the person who's keeping an eye on you.


If you like being a stalker instead, you can also apply.


The "service" is actually a performance project to observe response to attention and surveillance, but anyone can apply to be either followed or to be a follower. "There is something strangely intimate about the whole thing for me," McCarthy explains. "By the end of the day, I feel as though I know them, and we have had a prolonged experience together."


It's only available in New York City. Oh darn.

I haven't downloaded the app, but I think the app itself probably has an application.

Uh, that is just scary on sooooo many levels. Not only does it encourage stalking but I'm sure that there are people who are actual stalkers or who want to be stalkers who would use the app. And the part about it being a performance art project just seems really fishy to me. It more sounds like the information would be used to enhance already intrusive surveillance systems, at least that's my thought on what I read from what you quoted from the article. And the part about it being an 'intimate experience' is just bullshit. People who want to be stalked or who want to stalk someone have something seriously wrong with them. I think that this app should be reported as unsafe and taken down from wherever it is. I for one am certainly not going to be using it, even if it was in my area. And of course, it's in New York City, stalker heaven.

Meh, there are people out there with rape fantasies, pedophila, beastility fetishes, and even necrophila. And you think people who want to be stalked need help.

Desire is desire mate, some of it is wrong. But no one said the impulse thought process is supposed to make sense.

Infact multiple surveys for women have always had a rape fantasy as there number 1 fantasy.
Though the fantasy is more about being dominated or not in control with a stranger and not the actual brutality of rape.

My point exactly, sometimes the mere illusion is enough for people. Probably the same thing with this stalker app thing though until it really gets into action I'll wait until then to make a real judgement call.

Besides as long distance marksman I could see the appeal of hunting somebody for shit and giggles.
