This new app has taken social media a bit too seriously. Fill in a form and, only if you are one of the lucky applicants accepted, get yourself an literal 'follower' for the day. On the day of your 'following', you will then receive a notification reading, “Your Follower will be with you all day—within your consciousness but just beyond your sight—following, observing, appreciating each moment, without interfering.”
...I'm not convinced myself - technology taking one step too close to home.
Follower brands itself as “a service that grants you a real-life Follower for a day,” ensuring that you don’t go unnoticed. So if you ever feel like a wallflower, here’s your solution — have “someone that watches, someone that sees you, someone who cares.” The network’s website, a stark black background with bold white text, is truly indicative of the rather alarming nature of the site (and companion app)...Venture even further, and you’ll get to Follower’s “How Does It Work” page, the real coup d’etat in creepiness. The rather selective social network isn’t for just anyone — in fact, you have to apply to be followed, and only if you’re selected will you receive a link to download a related iPhone app.
