After causing a global media storm, “Yelp for humans” aka Peeple has officially launched and it’s once again making the headlines for its controversial nature.
What is Peeple exactly? According to its website, Peeple is an app that allows you to recommend and be recommended by the people you interact with on a daily basis. That means that people can “rate” you for your professionalism, friendship, and even your personal life. Simply put, Peeple is an app that strips you of the right to define yourself.
