Dating site facebook
The stock price for Match Group, the company that owns dating sites like Tinder, Ok Cupid, and Match.com, took a tumble after Facebook's announcement.
But the company doesn't appear worried.“We’re flattered that Facebook is coming into our space—and sees the global opportunity that we do—as Tinder continues to skyrocket.
It worked not unlike the experience of swiping through Tinder profiles does today.
Use your mobile phone to browse singles, view profiles and see photos on our dating website.
If you sign up for one of these apps, you can immediately pull in your Facebook photos, and autofill information like where you live, work, and went to school.
Tinder even shows users when a potential match has mutual friends with them on Facebook.
"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.Zuckerberg, as well as Chris Cox, Facebook’s chief product officer, stressed that the feature is designed to spark meaningful connections—not help you find your next hookup.But the reality is even Facebook doesn’t know yet how it will be widely used, if at all.Until recently, you couldn't even sign up for a Bumble account if you didn't already have a Facebook account.It's not unreasonable to wonder whether these apps would even exist without the social network.
You can only send text-based messages when chatting for the first time, which Facebook describes as a safety measure.
