Mashable dating

11 Jun

(Bumble did announce a plan to launch of disappearing, 10-second videos earlier this year, but thus far it hasn’t actually materialized.) While video has fast taken over the rest of the internet — and social media, in particular — dating apps have been slow to come on board.

Partly because there was no need to fix what wasn’t broken.

So why exactly do geeks need their own dating platform?

Often I wonder if these app launches are apps, or just publicity stunts for developers hungry for fame.In fact, in their most recent Singles in America survey, Match found that 72% of singles think "someone’s voice makes a person attractive." So if you can gauge that right off the bat, you’ll be able to save yourself a lot of trouble. Are they off-puttingly taken with themselves or too reserved for your taste?It’s also a really good way to get a sense of how someone strings together their thoughts. It’s a lot to ask of a minute-long clip, but in the high stakes numbers game that is online dating, this is exactly the kind of sorting tool many people are hungry for.Then when you see your matches, any shared interests are highlighted to make flipping through them faster.Cuddli uses GPS matching (just like Tinder and many other apps), but there is no pending list.
