Care to Find Out Which of Your Facebook Friends Hate You?


Last month, we brought you news of Rather, the revamped version of the brilliant and much-needed, co-created by Chris Baker. Rather is a great tool that lets you replace things you don’t want to see in your social media feeds — be it babies, sports, religion or the Kardashians — with things you do want to see, like cats. Because everyone wants to see pictures of cats. Baker was also responsible for “Charity Bribes” and a welcome attempt to send M. Night Shyamalan back to film school. Now, Baker has a new project, dubbed Hate With Friends.

Created in partnership with Mike Lacher and Tiger Wang, Hate With Friends allows you to select which of your Facebook friends you hate. According to the parties involved, “Seemed surprising that the internet hadn’t shelled out the opposite version of bangwithfriends, so we did.” Anyway, if they also hate you, both parties will be notified. You can kind of think of it as the opposite of Bang With Friends (apparently now renamed Down), although I suppose there are some circumstances where it’s not the opposite.

We’re not sure how useful Hate With Friends will be for people, or what happens once both parties have confirmed that they hate each other. A simple unfriending? Words With Friends grudge match? A duel at sundown? A titty twister? I imagine it will mostly be used as a joke, amongst friends who do not hate each other, although I’m sure there’s plenty of mutual hate going around on Facebook, seeing as how Facebook has all but destroyed the meaning of the term “friend.” If you’d like to find out if you have any Facebook frenemies, head on over to Hate With Friends. Let us know how it goes in the comments section.
