The one-two punch of self isolation and company closure means we are missing out on the everyday exchanges that make us from sharing a smile in Chemistry class to the opportunity to Netflix & Chill. And while most of us know we will need to stay home, Friends Finder has shown us that this doesn’t mean we must be alone with our thoughts and a tower of Top Ramen.
In this tough time, we see Friends Finder members finding new ways to link. As an area becomes more affected by physically-isolating steps, we see new conversations happening there and those discussions last longer. This outbreak is also changing the tenor of connection from the hardest hit places. Some people are using Friends Finder bios to show their concern for others (‘how is everyone’) instead of the life motto. Many of our current subscribers are even reaching out across the Earth, utilizing the Passport attribute, to find solidarity with games 1000s of miles away which allows you to connect with anyone, anywhere in the world, available for free to all members.
People can check in on folks in their own hometown, town, or sister town, and locate people across the world that are going through the same things. And we are looking forward to seeing how many people learn how to say “hey” in another language.
Every day, millions of our members anticipate us to introduce them to new folks, and we’re dedicated to building advanced security features powered by best-in-class technology that meet the needs of today’s daters. Friends Finder is rolling out a feature to members in select markets that detects whether an offensive material was sent. Is powered by machine learning and aided by the Friends Finder community, putting power in the hands of its members. When a Friends Finder member responds ‘yes’ to the Does This bother You?” Instantaneous, after receiving a possibly inappropriate message from a match, they will have the choice to report the person for their behavior. Similar technology also plays an important role in Undo, an upcoming feature that may ask the members if they’d love to take a message back containing possibly offensive language before it is sent.
