Nothing brings people together like shared hatred, and it turns where you live has a pretty big impact on what you absolutely despise.
The dating app Hater, which connects people based on stuff they can't stand, used info from their users to figure out what topics and things people in each state hate the most. Ok, so is it just us or are most of these head-scratchers?
So why exactly do geeks need their own dating platform?
Pinguino Kolb, one of the app's founders, told that those who revel in fandom and comic culture don’t always have the easiest time on more mainstream apps like Tinder.
For new apps that have attempted to make video their main attraction, it’s proved difficult to build up a sizable user base and moderating all that content to keep the inevitable creeps off the platform is a behemoth task.
You name the time and place, and then it’s put into the feed of open dates.
People in your area (that are your preferred gender and age) can then submit to be your date.
(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.
