Buyer Beware – Walmart Shopycat Tracking Application

This is a notice to all you tech savy users this holiday season. Retail giant Walmart is launching Shoppycat, a new app for Facebook users. The company will gather Facebook data for you, your family, your friends, business partners and acquaintances whether you like it or not. This will give a major advantage to the company over merchants across the web, similar to what the company has done to small businesses across the United States.

SHOPPYCAT APP REQUIRES:
  • Your e-mail address (Ex. britney-spears@gmail.com)
  • Your profile info: activities, interests, likes, location and relationship status
  • Friends’ profile info: activities, birthdays, interests, likes and locations

Shoppycat is designed to offer a more sophisticated e-shopping experience than its rivals Google, Ebay, and Amazon in the online marketplace. Shoppycat will take the member personal profile information and come up with a gift idea.  Buying Gag gifts might night be the best thing to do on Shoppycat. Your friends profile information and purchase decision will be stored for future purchases from you or others linked to you and your friend.
