Japanese Local Authorities Turn Matchmaker To Combat Low Birthrate

THE GUARDIAN - Apr 16 - Local government holds social 'machikon' events to introduce people to each other. Machikon take place in cafes and restaurants and are small festivals: the streets are closed to traffic, and participants pay a fee of L15 to L35. In return they get unlimited food and drink. The idea is that people talk and form relationships. According to the Japan Machikon Producers Organisation local government affiliates have organised 59 machikon events since 2012.

Users State Sexual Intentions With HeavenlySinful Dating App

TECH CRUNCH - Apr 14 - HeavenlySinful is like Tinder but it asks users to state what they’re after each time they open up the app. Their intentions, either Heavenly or Sinful, are then put on a mood map for people nearby to see who in their neighborhood is feeling frisky or looking for something legit. Right now, the company can generate revenue of in-app purchases for stickers and such, but eventually the team is considering implementing a system that lets someone pay to talk to another user if they didn’t get a match.
