While most dating apps bring people together by matching their common interests, Hater connects people who dislike the same thing.
Creator Brendan Alper was inspired after reading a survey showing that people sharing common dislikes can form a stronger bond than those sharing common interests. A University of Oklahoma study revealed that sharing common negative feelings would “promote interpersonal unity.”
After creating a profile, Hater users are asked for their opinion on random topics selected from more than 3000 issues including politics, celebrities, music, social media, employment, education, and more. The app prohibits issues related to racial segregation, ethnicity, or socioeconomic differences.
Over time, Hater has collected an incredible amount of data concerning what Americans “hate.” The map below shows what each state hates the most based on this data.
Remember, this map doesn’t necessarily match your opinion, just the most popular opinion of Hater users in your state.
We’ve broken the map up by region for improved readability:
Do you agree with the popular opinion in your state?
