Call it anti-social non-networking.

Tired of getting more connected with people via every platform imaginable? Apps that help you avoid people are starting to attract decent funding.

Techcrunch reports that Split, a competitor to the similar Cloak, has attracted $1 million in funding.

Co-founder Udi Dagan explained to Techcrunch why he was inspired to create the app.

""I ran into two ex-girlfriends in the same night," he said. "It was an awful night, really…I said, 'That's too much.' I was really frustrated."
