Watch A Creepy Dude Facebook Stalk You With “Take This Lollipop”
[ Social Media]

Whenever you see that now-famous Facebook allow box, the one that allows applications access to all your awesome personal data in order to work properly, do you still feel a tinge of trepidation? Do you imagine the worst – that somewhere, someone now knows everything about you and is going to use that information in very bad ways?

Take This Lollipop, a new interactive experience, works on the same kind of privacy fears – in an amazingly creepy way.

Once you allow it to connect to your Facebook account, it populates the video with all of your personal information – photos, wall postings, friend lists, even your location. And the location data serves as the disturbing climax of the experience.

And the video is great fun. It involves a questionable individual Facebook stalking you from the privacy of what could easily be a kidnapping dungeon or a torture room from the set of Hostel – it’s that dark and dingy. Watching this guy browse through your entire Facebook presence is unsettling, to say the least.

Take This Lollipop is a interesting use of the Facebook API – one that plays on a lot of people’s fears about privacy when it comes to social media.

Here’s a promo video for the experience –

Check it out. They dare you.

    I’m the actor in Take This Lollipop and I have to say that it still creeped me out when I signed in to see it on my own Facebook profile. It is so cleverly designed that I forgot I was watching myself. Definitely disturbing. And oddly fun. Bill Oberst Jr.

      I think they did a great job. I hope it lands you more gigs. What I’d like to see Facebook do is let people choose which data specifically that apps get to use and warnings when you don’t want to let an app use certain data that it requires to work properly and thus not let you use the app if certain data you want to block from the app that requires it to work properly. It would make app developers think about what if somebody doesn’t want them to know say for example their location, and ways to still get the app to work without that data that is blocked.

    Maybe this will open the eyes of people to understand that the information they share can be used in sinister ways. Hopefully it will help people realize to be more cautious with their information.
