WhitePages, a public records directory, have developed an app that compiles stored data and allows a use to search a location for venues, people and businesses.
Although this can simply be considered a digital alternative to the Yellow Pages, the company turns a profit by charging for deeper records -- including background checks and criminal records.
Add an aerial view to a person search, and you are granted with a street view of names, addresses, and publicly available phone numbers.
If you live in a property, the company are happy for you to 'claim' it and provide additional information for this arguably privacy-ignoring service. Perhaps it's going a little too far.

How does it actually feel to have an illness which takes away your identity, bit by bit?
It isn't something most people can truly imagine. However, a past campaign used social media in order to try and give individuals a glimpse into how damaging and painful it can be.
The app, called 'Sort me Out', gradually deleted all of your Facebook information -- as a digital replica of degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.
Information including your friends and photos slowly vanish, in order for you to understand how it feels to feel and see your connections to the world evaporate.
The campaign to raise awareness of these diseases has now finished.
