ImageCrashers displays random profiles selected from Facebook using Facebook Graph API. We provide links to the user albums that you can view by visiting Facebook.
Many times, people visit the profiles of friends of their friends and view their pictures. This could be to look at how beautiful they are, or to see how much fun they are having or for just mere curiosity. ImageCrashers extends this idea by displaying random profiles picked from Facebook. It is like checking out strangers in a mall. It could be your Serendipity!
If you like a facebook user, you can add them to your favorites, and visit their profiles when you revisit ImageCrashers.
We were inspired by the movie Wedding Crashers. ImageCrashers provides you a virtual way of crashing people's public images.
Complex privacy settings of Facebook cause many users to post pictures intended for their friends to public. This privacy lapse could have serious consequences to users depending on who is viewing their profile.
We want to bring awareness among the general public about the public availability of their images.
Our inspiration is youropenbook.org which created awareness about the public posts of people.
Yes. Even though the images are public, you need to be logged into Facebook to view them, even though you don't need to be friends with them or even be friends of their friends. When you are logged into your Facebook account, you will be able to view all the user's public pictures in their albums
You can make your images accessible to only your friends in your privacy settings. Alternatively, you can visit ReclaimPrivacy.org to see what is public about your profile, and they have a tool that helps you to secure your privacy settings.
No. We are just using Facebook's APIs that can be used by any programmer to gather the same information.
Currently we don't. But some of our friends have created a nice mashup of youtube, wiki and Facebook. You can visit them at http://cinemahunter.com
