UPDATE: The site’s creator made Tiggerstalk as a pre-Frosh. ”I was fed up with College Facebook even before I got to campus,” he said. The creator is yet to have any contact with the school regarding the site. “I have fun with it. Try typing in ‘hottest indian’.”
We’ve caught wind of a site that’s looking to give everyone (university students and beyond) easier access to the information on both College Facebook (thankfully, however, without those glorious mugshots) and Facebook.com. Check it out at Tigerfacebook.com. Without a netID, you can get access to anyone’s email address, Frist mailbox number, etc. Apparently, the site existed under the name of Tiggerstalk for the past year or so.
The site’s FAQ (which mentions the annoying inability of College Facebook to handle first+last name queries…) also lists the following with regard to privacy and creepiness: “Isn’t this creepy? Maybe, but know that all the information you find on Tiger Facebook is (or was previously) freely available on the web. Tiger Facebook doesn’t store personal data; it retrieves information and formats it in a readable way.”
Additionally, the Facebook.com integration doesn’t seem too intrusive; the most I’ve found is that each individual’s entry includes a link that opens up a subsequent search in Facebook.com for said individual’s name.
If you’ve got a problem with the site, tough luck–the FAQ says that “you should work with the university to figure that out.”
