Crush or Flush is a mobile social network with a focus on users identifying the attractiveness of strangers. Crush of Flush is a product by IceBreaker. Members of Crush or Flush use their cell phones to cycle through photos of other members and indicate whether to â€œcrushâ€ or â€œflushâ€ them. If two members mutually crush each other, they are able to text message each other. Profiles provide not only photos but basic information and descriptive tags. You can refer people to friends and view a list of people who have crushed you.
