Social networks, watch out, here comes Cloak, the anti-social app

Your presence & contacts on social networking sites can make you bump into people whom you would rather avoid. Now you can isolate yourself from such contacts by downloading & using a free iOS app named Cloak which touts itself as the “anti-social network”.

Cloak uses a simple methodology to keep track of contacts you do not wish to, well, contact. It connects with Instagram & Foursquare social networks & maps the most recent locations of your friends. You can select a preset radius & choose to get an alert when undesirable contacts get too close to you.

The creators of Cloak say they have not utilized Twitter’s location data because it’s “quite vague” & most users usually turn it off. Similarly they have avoided using Facebook data as most contacts on this network such as high school friends aren’t likely to be in your vicinity. But Cloak reveals it has plans to add more networks to the two it maps now.

The anti-social element of Cloak makes it similar to another app named ‘Hell Is Other People’, which was launched last year. ‘Hell…’ also uses Foursquare geo-location data as well as Google Maps to help users steer clear of unwanted contacts.

Cloak is a product of programmer Brian Moore & Chris Baker who was a creative director with Buzzfeed. Baker says the social networking fad has become passé, & now it is the turn of “anti-social stuff” to become popular.

Cloak was released earlier this month, & the company says it will adopt a wait & watch approach to see the response before adding more features.
