​26-year-old Yiannis Kakavas has invented Creepy, an application that he describes as a “geolocation information aggregator,” thinq.co.uk reports. What that means: Type in someone’s Flickr or Twitter account into Creepy, and it will cultivate all the information available from the user’s photos or tweets and draws a map of their locations at the time of posting. If you feel that this is an invasion of privacy, keep in mind that all the information used is already public. Scary, huh?

Update:  Link to ThinQ removed after it was bought out by an unrelated firm that now redirects to advertising.
