Tinder Is Launching 'Reactions'

TECH CRUNCH - Oct 4 - Following in the footsteps of Facebook and iMessage, Tinder has introduced "Reactions," letting Tinder users send each other custom animated responses. These reactions include Hearts, Eye Roll, Round of Applause, Martini Throw, etc. In January of last year, Tinder introduced photo messaging, Giphy support, and bigger emojis. Actress and comedian Whitney Cummings is helping Tinder launch Reactions in a video series called "The Menprovement Initiative," directed by J.J. Adler. The video shows real female employees at Tinder interacting with Whitney Cummings to improve men. Tinder Reactions might make conversation easier between Tinder parties, but it doesn't seem to fit in well with the so-called Menprovement Initiative.

Shares Of Match Are Up 31% Since The Tinder Gold Launch

BARRON'S NEXT - Oct 5 - About a month ago, Tinder finally gave users a chance to pre-sort their potential matches. With Tinder Gold, users only see people who've already liked them. That little paid feature has lit a fire under parent company Match Group's stock. Shares of Match have soared 31% since the Gold launch, and Match's shares are up 9% this week alone, as Tinder continues to place highly in the App Store's rankings of top-grossing apps.

Pia Poppenreiter Buys Her Ohlala App Back

GRUENDERSZENE - Oct 5 - Pia Poppenreiter has repurchased all shares of her 'escort' dating app Ohlala from all shareholders. Ohlala is a German dating app that allows users being paid (100 - 200Eur) for going on a date. The app was founded by Pia Poppenreiter and Torsten Stüber, and raised 1.7M Eur in 2015 to expand into USA and other cities in Germany. However the app failed to monetize and an argument broke out among Ohlala's angel investors, who paralyzed the startup for almost a year. Pia Poppenreiter says she is currently not focusing on investing new capital from investors. She wants to focus on the future and build a new team for Ohlala.

AyoPoligami Is A New Tinder-style Dating App For Polygamists

MIRROR.CO.UK - Oct 2 - AyoPoligami is an Indonesian dating app that helps married men find another wife. Polygamy is legal in Indonesia, where a man is allowed to be married to up to four women at a time. The app's developer Lindu Pranayama, who met his first - and currently only - wife on the app, started his company in 2016 after realizing regular dating sites weren't catering to married men looking for a second, third or fourth wife. Women's rights activists are calling it "upsetting and shocking". In order to enter a polygamous marriage, men in Indonesia are required to gain their first wife's consent and pass a religious court investigation, which will look to confirm that she is incapable of fulfilling her duties as a wife.

FlirtAR - A New App That Uses AR To Help People Find Dates

MASHABLE - Oct 3 - FlirtAR, pronounced "flirter," is launching for iOS. (It'll be available for Android at the end of this month.) It uses AR to help users find potential matches who are nearby. It uses geolocation to find people close by. Another feature lets users move themselves on the map to a different location and view potential matches there, though people can see that they're not actually there and are just scoping out the scene. The app is planning to introduce a premium tier of services in the coming months.
