REALLY BAD BUSINESS IDEA: A Facebook App That Encourages Your Crush To Break Up With A Significant Other And Date You Instead

The idea: Falling for someone in a relationship? WaitingRoom is the latest solution.The Facebook app notifies users when their crushes become single.

What’s worse, it emails their crushes before breakups even happen. It lets the committed person know someone’s waiting for their relationship to end. The app won’t tell them who, though, until the breakup is Facebook official.

Whose idea: Caraso

Why it’s a bomb: The app’s obvious flaw is its infinite creepiness, but there are logistical issues too. Stalking is limited to those who list their relationship status, but many people—taken or not—opt out.

Caraso competitor Breakup Notifier, which had 3 million users, was banned by Facebook last week. We’re sure this creepy copycat will soon face the same fate.
