Facebook Breakup Notifier: Creepy?

A new Facebook app lets you keep tabs on the relationship status of select Facebook friends. Is this sort of thing appropriate?

Facebook Breakup Notifier lets you keep tabs on friendsDo you have that Facebook friend you're just hoping with break up with their significant other? Tired of constantly looking at their relationship status to look for a change?

Now you don't have to. A new Facebook application, Facebook Breakup Notifier, lets you monitor certain friends and will email you when their relationship status changes, according to CNN.

"You like someone. They're in a relationship. Be the first to know when they're out of it," according to the app's website.

We have to admit, that sounds like the perfect application for a stalker. OK, it's all pretty innocent, but would you want to swoop in on someone who just broke up with their significant other? Hello, Rebound City!

Social media is great and all, but you should probably keep pursuing relationships the old-fashioned way. After all, won't your crush-in-waiting wonder why you're suddenly hanging around all of a sudden?

What do you think of the Facebook Breakup Notifier?

Oh goodness, this app is awful! Who would really want to swoop in right after a break up?! And if you aren't already close enough to the couple to know that they aren't together anymore you probably don't stand a chance. I think this is so ridiculous and I would want no part in it.

Yikes, I do not like that app. Plus, I wouldn't want to date a guy who was literally waiting on me to be single. I'd prefer he focus on himself and do his own thing, and hoping that I'm happy. Kinda weird to think someone is waiting for you to go through heartbreak so they can swoop in.

Ugh - I hate this! It's no one's business if a breakup occurs.
