A few weeks ago, after Alexandra Amin, an associate at Warner Brothers, separated with a realtor she was dating for per year, her friend informed her about a unique, free, female-friendly social network software that allows females anonymously review men whom are their Facebook buddies.

On Lulu, ladies can speed guys in groups — ex-boyfriend, crush, together, hooked-up, friend or general — having a quiz that is multiple-choice. Ladies, their gender confirmed by their Facebook logins, add hashtags that are pink a man’s profile including the nice (#KinkyInTheRightWays) towards the bad (#NeverSleepsOver) towards the unsightly (#PornEducated). The hashtags are acclimatized to determine a rating created by Lulu, which range from 1 to 10, that appears under the man’s profile picture. (The company’s spokeswoman declined to describe the ranks algorithm. ) Guys can add on hashtags, which can be found in blue, however these aren’t factored in their general rating.
