The popular dating site Match.com has launched a missed connections feature on their mobile app. The feature is neat, but it is also a tad scary.
Using the GPS of your phone, users can see other members based on location. While its a first for the site, the dating app Happn is already based on this premise: two singles cross paths, perhaps on the subway or at a park, without ever speaking, only to connect via GPS.
What ever happened to good out soul mates? Two people accidentally running into one another and falling in love…aww.
Now, Match is using their own hyper-location technology to match people after they cross paths in real life. The technology will allow both parties to start a conversation using the app. The beta version has been available in San Francisco and Dallas, where more than two thirds of Match users opted in.
Not sure how long this will last…but while it may be a neat way to meet new people…it opens the door for crazy people to easily find you. Date safe.
