(Silicon Valley) August 15, 2012 – Riding the wave of successfully social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, a new start up out of Silicon Valley launched this week called YourFace. YourFace is the first anti-social network, and hopes to find mass appeal among love-able losers worldwide.
YourFace allows users to do much of the same things they are currently used to on Facebook such as upload photos, update their status and, check-in to local hotspots. However they will be unable to friend anyone else on YourFace, or see anyone else’s profiles.
“Who’s your biggest fan?” asked YourFace co-founder Chris Peterson. “You! So why not create a place where you brag all about the show you just saw, or the meal you just had, but not worry about anyone else seeing your stuff and leaving nasty comments such as ‘hey Chris, you’re so gay!‘ or ‘why don’t go back to your basement and play Dungeons and Dragon’s nerd!‘”
Some unique features that YourFace will have include, syncing to your World of Warcraft account to track your game progress, and a database of all the Magic Cards and game tips and tricks for reference. Developers are also working on a “Basement Renovation” app that allows you to see different ways to organize your Mom’s basement, and the best place to put the TV so she won’t complain about hearing you play Halo all night.
While Peterson says they will not release the names of YourFace users and the exact amount of users, he assures us that excitement is running high in underground chat rooms, and that if he showed us the chat rooms, he would have to kill us. Then he laughed to himself, snorted, and adjusted his glasses.
Even though YourFace users can not have human friends attached to their page, they can include their cats. However, they do intend to put a limit of 15 cats because according to Peterson, “after 15 cats, things start to get a little weird.”
