If aliens were to see our digital productions as an examination of Earth life, I wonder what they would gather from the following?
I can hear some of you already."Not another one! I've yet to check out all the existing numpties that are already harassing me, on the apps I have got!" Well take heart single person. It would seem that the growing fashion for dating apps is now for quality over quantity.
Coffee Meets Bagel is the brainchild of 3, South Korean born sisters; Arum, Dawoon and Soo Kang. Now natives of New York City, they have seen that the mega metropolis, with its population of over 8million people, presents challenges for the right people to meet each other. Looking at their own predicament, the sisters 3 have created an app, where once again Facebook is the central connecting point to profiles of a potential romantic match up.
HOW IT WORKS
Everyday at noon, a profile match is sent to your phone...Yes I said a profile, singular - as everybody that is sent to you is considered carefully in relation to you. If 24 hours pass and you haven't given the go ahead, the profile expires. In this method the inventors have now created a hub where you have to be somewhat straight forward in your approach. And since these profiles are friends of friends, a sullied reputation is an easy thing to garner if you're going to mess people around and be a complete idiot. People talk.
Guiding Principles To Coffee Meets Bagels Are:
It would seem that as a business venture, Coffee Meets Bagel has hit the right G spot. In a app sector that is hardly starving, the company has already received a buyout offer of $30million.
Opting to receive financing instead, they ladies have acquired $7.8million, from a variety of businesses. You can be assured that this app is going to take off in ways that others have not.
Highly accomplished in their individual respective fields, I am looking forward to their next invention.
