Nobody likes a jerk, that’s true, but the WhosHere geosocial networking app is really keen in making this fact known to everybody. The WhosHere app, which is used by about 400,000 people from across 148 countries, has recently been updated, and one of the new features the update brings to the table is a Jerk Filter (as you can see from the image at the bottom).

“With over 400,000 users, WhosHere is ideal for making new friends, dating, professional networking, or just chatting and swapping pictures with new and interesting people nearby and around the world. WhosHere helps you meet people near you with similar interests. It takes the chance out of the chance encounter! Simply fill out your profile and indicate the age and gender of the person you would like to meet. Whether indoors or outside, on a bus, in a car, at home or in a bar, WhosHere will show you the people closest to you that match that description,” says the official presentation of this free iPhone app.


The Jerk Filter rates users according to how they use the WhosHere app, how other users react to them, and several other criteria. The purpose is to keep users that do not want to be annoyed by any “jerk.” But this is not the only features WhosHere has to offer; it also comes with the following:
- Separate “Chat” tabs function as an inbox for the people you have previously socialized with.
- You can add captions to your profile pictures.
- Despite the fact that your iPhone’s internet connection goes down, you can still access unread messages.
- Enhanced “who sees me” and “who I see” option in My Profile.
- Improved emoticons for you to make use of in any text message.

WhosHere is a very popular iPhone app. Just to put things in perspective, here are some figures:
- 15th most popular app in the iTunes Social Networking category.
- More than 30 million text messages are sent per month in the WhosHere network.
- Over 400,000 users from 148 countries.

If you would like to get WhosHere, an iTunes download location is available here.
