Peeple is announced by McCullough and Cordray as a “Yelp for People”. The app, which will be released in November 2015, will allow people to rate other people. To review someone, users must be 21 and have an established Facebook account. Reviews, which are in three categories (personal, professional or romantic) must be under the reviewer’s real name, and are made under the subjects cell phone number. Positive ratings post immediately; negative ratings are queued in a private inbox for 48 hours in case of disputes. Negative reviews are not shown for non-registered users. Cordray:
People do so much research when they buy a car or make those kinds of decisions. Why not do the same kind of research on other aspects of your life?..As two empathetic, female entrepreneurs in the tech space, we want to spread love and positivity. We want to operate with thoughtfulness.
