I am surprised that a thread has not already been started on this. I did not know exactly where to put this.
When the app does launch, probably in late November, you will be able to assign reviews and one- to five-star ratings to everyone you know: your exes, your co-workers, the old guy who lives next door. You can’t opt out — once someone puts your name in the Peeple system, it’s there unless you violate the site’s terms of service. And you can’t delete bad or biased reviews — that would defeat the whole purpose.
The potential for abuse is so great. People will not even know they have a profile and yet could suffer the consequences of a malicious profile.
Potential employers can/will check for a peeple profile, you do not even know exists.
Supposedly in the future , one will have the ability to delete a profile on them. I am betting some sort of fee will be involved.
On the other hand, I can see the service being put out of existence by civil suits.
Funny thing, Julia Corday, was just inquiring on how to remove negative feedback comments on this startup for her Facebook page.

That may be harder than you think -
Positive ratings post immediately; negative ratings are queued in a private inbox for 48 hours in case of disputes. If you haven’t registered for the site, and thus can’t contest those negative ratings, your profile only shows positive reviews.
On top of that, Peeple has outlawed a laundry list of bad behaviors, including profanity, sexism and mention of private health conditions.

The potential for abuse of this app is insane in my opinion.
Social media and what not is widely over rated.
I choose privacy over open exposure any day.
