Dattch, Lesbian Dating App, Launches In SF

TECH CRUNCH - Mar 1 - Aimed exclusively at lesbians, bisexual and/or bi-curious women, the Dattch dating app is now launching in SF. The app emphasises photos, and thus draws comparisons with Pinterest in user interface. Dattch does not emphasise proximity-based social networking. It incorporates Facebook Connect and makes a point of weeding out fake profiles created by straight men. Dattch targeted London and other UK cities initially. Australia is also on its roadmap. The mostly female team has closed a $160K Angel round.

Only 6% Of Users Think Tinder Is A Hookup App

THE GUARDIAN - Feb 24 - Originally launched in the US in Aug 2012, Tinder has since spread around the world. In the last 60 days, Tinder has added ~1M new users in the UK alone, according to co-founder and CMO Justin Mateen. He’s emphatic that Tinder is not a “hookup” app, but a social discovery platform, facilitating an introduction between two people. “Our research shows that ~6% of our users think it’s a hookup app, and early on that number was probably much bigger, so we’ve been working hard,” he says. For now, Tinder is free, although the company will introduce in-app purchases at some point in the future to start making money.

Secret Diamond Club Is Launching In UK

DAILYMAIL.CO.UK - Feb 24 - Secret Diamond Club is a dating site for beautiful women and wealthy men. It started in Demark in 2010 and has recently launched in the UK. The site was started by serial entrepreneur Gus Terkelsen, who has a rather controversial reason for his decision to launch in the UK, claiming rich British men can't find love as the women here are unattractive. It costs up to $100K a year for men to join, women pay less but have to meet the strict looks criteria of a panel of twenty ‘experts’ and submit three photographs, including a full body shot.
