Friend and mobile dating sites
It worked not unlike the experience of swiping through Tinder profiles does today.
BLESS or curse the smartphone, but you can’t doubt its impact.
Until recently, you couldn't even sign up for a Bumble account if you didn't already have a Facebook account.
And now Tinder, as well as apps like it, will have to compete with Facebook itself—an app everyone is already using.
We’re surprised at the timing given the amount of personal and sensitive data that comes with this territory," Mandy Ginsberg, the CEO of Match Group, said in a statement.
"Regardless, we’re going to continue to delight our users through product innovation and relentless focus on relationship success. Facebook’s entry will only be invigorating to all of us.”"Come on in. Their product could be great for US/Russia relationships," Joey Levin, the CEO of IAC, Match Group's parent company, added.
For example, if you're attending a concert, you'll be able to "unlock" your profile, so that potential matches who have said they're going to the same show can see it.
The social network says it's going to start testing Dating later this year, and that it's not going to use information from the feature to target ads.
