Is Social Media About to Eat Itself Whole
You know all those freinds you have on Facebook? Say the hundreds and hundreds of them, some of which you really like and others you haven't spoken with in 10 years. Now a new Web site will let any of them review YOU annonomously and for free. Unvarnished.com, currently in beta testing, lets users review friends, families, ex-boyfriends, etc ... without having to leave a name (or even initials). Employees can comment on bosses, students on teachers, and even co-workers on co-workers. While not fully launched, the controversy about its functionality is in full gear.
From the Huffingtonpost.com:
Unvarnished, a website that has launched in beta, lets you review people you know.
Got a gripe about your manager's sloppy emails? Know dirt about a former classmate's past? Have something you want to share about an employee's good (or terrible) workplace habits? Unvarnished, which has been described as a sort of Yelp-meets-LinkedIn, will let you share all this and more--anonymously.
