Follow the controversy of Lulu, the application that women use to vote for men


With labels like he always pays, or #three legsMen continue to be voted many times without their knowledge. The Lulu app, which we talked about a few days after entering Brazil wanting to imitate the success it has in the United States, is reaping great controversy in the country, where the laws are quite different from those in the United States.

The operation is simple: any user can obtain the profile of their Facebook contacts and vote anonymously to describe them in various aspects, including their performance. This violation of privacy was the cause of the Public Ministry taking actions to prohibit the implementation of said project in the country, asking for explanations from both the company responsible for Lulu and Facebook.

The fact is that while the application is on the tightrope, the Brazilians have begun to do their projects to respond to the fever of the female vote:

– The application has been created Tubby, the male version of Lulu, in which men could vote for women focusing precisely on the most controversial point: intimate relationships. Of course, the application has been banned by the justice after receiving several complaints from associations that defend the right, equality and dignity of women in Brazil (associations that are also against what Lulu offers). The court decision also prohibits Apple and Google from disclosing the application in their corresponding markets, as well as Facebook from allowing Tubby access to collect the profile information.

– The site has been created that allows us to see the note that the women have given us, without the need for us to install the application to verify said number.

– The application has been created LuluFake, a project that improves the reputation of men in the Lulu application. Interested parties pay to have the system note altered with false votes, allowing to move from the situation on the left of the image to the situation on the right.

And the story continues, always remembering that the right of one ends where the other begins, and that applies on and off the Internet.
