The backlash against "sharing everything" begins -- two people at a time.

It seems some people are starting to get the idea that not everything should be posted in public on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or whatever that Google+ thing is supposed to be...

SOME friends were gushing recently about a new mobile application called Pair, intended for people in a relationship................. The secrecy was welcome. We weren’t cluttering up anyone else’s feeds on Twitter, and didn’t have to worry about random high school friends seeing and commenting on our exchanges on Facebook. In addition, there were gestures distinct to the app. It let us share information about our locations, and to exchange doodles, to-do lists and virtual nudges — all conveying that “I’m thinking about you.”

Shhhh, don't spoil it.

See it those that buy into Pair figure it out on their own.

Probably not and the fact they gave it a cutesy name like Pair will mean us poor guys will get it shoved down our throats whether we like it or not. It'll probably quickly become a measure of whether you're really a 'pair' or not if you don't use it.

Then some ass will make a new service called PairBond that will evaluate your private stream vs. public stream so your other half can get stats on how much discussion you devote to HER vs everyone else, or as she calls them, "those random internet losers".

May 1st, 2012 -- From the app's support site blog. Before getting some press:

In our first month on the App Store, Pair has been downloaded by over 220,000 people, and that number is growing every day!

I don't get it either - haven't people heard of talking to their partner?

Pair 2.0, now with location tracker, ex-blocker, social channel monitoring, shopping site transaction logging and built in spyware so you can hear whatever your partner is saying, wherever they are.

The cutesy market is too limited. They should go for the psycho stalker / slapper market. Multiple partner "sock puppet" account management, fake check-ins with "mates", etc. I.e. the group of people that would much rather use an app than, y'know, actually talk to their partner...

...it's been 4 years (nearly to the date) since I replied to your post about Facbook "Friend Connect".

The number of methods of "talking to their partner" has grown, but "talking" seems to be even more on the decline ---
