      "Social media is invading everything, especially dating. People love people, but they're scared of them, or don't know how to meet others. Enter apps like this, which apply technology in an effort to make money off how much people want love. Log your pictures, enter some details, and then wait for people to contact you. If you're really cute, why would you use it? Especially if you don't want to wade through all the hopeful contacts. If you're not, who's gonna contact you? All in all, an idea that sounds like it might work, but really it's just more of the same. But now with extra loss of privacy, which is a 21st Century bonus. I couldn't uninstall this fast enough."

      "With the recent update, it messes up my matches and messages. I would continuously get notifications about new matches and messages but I can't open it at all. I tried everything include uninstalling, logging out, restart etc. like a hundred times."

    DID YOU KNOW?

    Did you know that instant messaging came before the dawn of the internet? A report indicates that the term “instant messaging” entered common usage in the early 1990s, although the concept actually dates back to the mid-1960s. In 1961, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computation Center created multi-user operating systems which would allow up to 30 users to log in at the same time and send messages to each other. A 2013 study also found out that about 1.48 billion IM app users all came from China alone, and a research by United Kingdom auditing and consulting firm Deloitte back in 2014 claimed that users in the UK sent at least 46 messages daily.

    As of 2017, one of the most, if not the top, used instant messaging app is LINE. Originally built in response to the damaged telecommunications infrastructure in Japan after the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, it has evolved into one of the most financially successful mobile instant messenger with a social platform of its own. LINE also offers a gaming platform and is one of the leading mobile gaming app publishers on the Google Play Store worldwide. Its mobile app publisher revenues amounted to $26.79 million. Presently, the market is abound with plenty of instant messaging apps available for PC, Android, and iOS.

It reminds me of the “good ol’ days” back in the late 90’s/early 00’s when I used to go into chat rooms similar to this on dial-up internet! Anyways, I’m enjoying it so far (when I have the time for it) Give it a try! It also seems to be really safe and the team does what it can to keep it that way! Team— do not let negative reviews/comments get to you!!! Use them as motivation! Especially if you know that what’s being said is false! Keep up the good work!"
