“I Can Stalk U” using online pictures

A new website entitled I Can Stalk U has arrived fresh on the heels of the website Please Rob Me. Both websites try and raise awareness about over sharing on the internet today. Please Rob Me focused on how people proactively share their location online. I Can Stalk U looks a a slightly more scaring form of over sharing, meta data in online photographs.

I Can Stalk U looks through Twitter for posts that include pictures. It then scans the meta data for the picture and tries to find the address where the picture was taken. If successful it posts the username and the location in the ICanStalkU feed.
