Zuckerberg Is Into Dating

At its annual F8 developer conference on Tuesday, Facebook announced it was playing the dating game. The company will be getting into the $3Billion online dating category to build “real long-term relationships, not hookups” as its beleaguered of late CEO said.

I wonder who is dumb enough to want to build a long-term relationship between Cambridge Analytica and Co and their private life.

  1. On topic – Cambridge Analytica have just decided they will cease conducting business and declare the company insolvent. So presumably all that data will be sold off to god knows who… watch out for the asset strippers!

    Lovelorn people who signed up for apps like this one. It is and was a buggy piece of shit that only showed you people thousands of miles away. And it made you link your Facebook profile to the app. Not quite the same as directly going into Facebook’s new dating nonsense but I’m sure there were a lot of apps like that. A greater number of overall apps use Facebook/Google Plus logins but don’t require them.

    Most people don’t want to put their thirst photos and their professional photos on the same platform. There are a lot of job groups on Facebook and I have friends who’ll post job openings informally on their pages. And some employers will ask you to friend them on Facebook when you apply.

      To be fair, Zuckerberg is still learning our human ways…

        1. Yes, I’ve never understood why people give away so much for “convenience” when often the convenience doesn’t save any time, money, and just makes one’s life worse. It’s like those “shortcuts” that invariably end up taking far longer but people still attempt them anyway.

          I do wonder if “convenience” just isn’t the excuse of the rationalization for something else, though. I’m not sure what that something else might be, though. Perhaps addiction to the validation present on such platforms as Facebook, or addiction to the feeling of the fear of missing out.

            It’s more like it’s a meaningless buzzword that it’s really hard to argue against (like ‘freedom’ or ‘tolerance’ or ‘good’ or ‘nice’) and so people go along with it assuming there’s something wrong with them when it really isn’t convenient at all because who wants to be pro-inconvenience?

  3. These major businesses and companies must think of people as only being biological “markets”—malleable enough to be cajoled into whatever services and products they deem fit to concoct solely for the purpose of benefitting their bottom lines.
    Once a week I get a ton of ads in the mail, full of sales and coupons—and I’m always thinking “Whoever told all these advertisers I was such a ‘hot market’ for all these products?” Especially considering I’m very practical and sporadic about how, when, and where I spend what little money I have.
