A new Facebook application for the popular social networking website allows users to express their dislike of people, places, and organizations, reports CNN.

EnemyGraph, the aptly titled app, allows Facebook users to list things they dislike and share them with other users who may share a common hatred. Currently, Facebook only allows users to "like" various posts.

"Most social networks attempt to connect people based on affinities: you like a certain band or film or sports team, I like them, therefore we should be friends,” EnemyGraph co-creator Dean Terry said in a blog post. “But people are also connected and motivated by things they dislike. Alliances are created, conversations are generated, friendships are stressed, stretched, and/or enhanced.”

Currently “Trending Enemies” include people and things ranging from president Barack Obama to Hip Hop music, beets, crocs, and the “Twilight” series.

The most popular “Enemy” so far has been Justin Bieber.
