    I think this has potential, really at it's core how different is it from an anonymous hotline and it doesn't seem any less or more secure nor prone to abuse.

    Except hotlines can't go snooping round your house and picking through your bins for evidence of wrong doing - wheras it sounds like this app can do just that to your facebook profile.

    This is a great idea.
    Name me one person that's not criminally insane who uses facebook more than 10 mins/month.
