Signaling Your Single Want to write for the O-Town Scene? E-mail Cassandra at 6 O-Town Scene March 10, 2011 Status on Facebook Searching for romance on Facebook might have gotten a little easier with a new application for the social website. The Breakup Notifier delivers an e-mail straight to your inbox when a “friend” changes his or her relationship status to “single.” “It’s an unspoken way people use Face- book. It’s a glorified dating site,” says Dan Loewenherz, who developed the Breakup Notifier. Loewenherz says he developed the app as a way to help would-be lovers find out when their secret crushes are free to date again. Although some critics have accused him of helping stalkers, Loewenherz says that his program just makes it easier for users to do what they were already doing. But he admits that its popularity has made some people more aware of just how public their Facebook information is. He calls his program tame by comparison with how some developers could use infor- mation on Facebook. They’re not all trying to spark romance, he says. Every good relationship needs to be examined every now and then. Perhaps it’s time to think about your relationship with Facebook and its applications. You might start with your relationship status. _ Melissa Bell, The Washington Post
