Are devin and collin still dating
At its heart, Down still an app for selecting people you think are sexy, hoping they choose you too, and then being connected over chat, similar to Tinder.But the new changes could make Down a vain curiosity for many and a daily habit for those on the prowl, rather than the rarely used utility Bang With Friends was.That’s part of the reason we rebranded”, Hodge tells me.That sure minimizes the fact that Zynga owned the “With Friends” trademark from its hit game series that include Words With Friends.It takes two to tango, though, and women didn’t seem so keen on joining anything called Bang With Friends.At the peak of its hype in the spring of 2013, a way to see which of your friends had installed the supposedly anonymous app surfaced.
Down’s update lets you browse friends of friends rather than just friends, say you want to date as opposed to just being ‘down’ [to bang] someone, as well as browse the hottest people in your network.
“We want this to empower both males and females to be straight forward with their dating life, whether that means sex or a more traditional commitment, so we very much dispute any cries of sexism” Hodge tells me, though it’s tough to tell if he’s earnest or if this the sweet talk of a player. It’s about looks first and foremost, which promotes a degree of objectification.
It may still have trouble getting enough users of both sexes to make connections.
Friends of friends are less awkward to proposition than people you already know, yet the mutual connections provide a layer of trust that could convince people they won’t get axe-murdered on date set up through Down.
Hodge explains “One of the biggest requests was, ‘I love using the app but I’m running out of people.'” If you have 1,000 friends with 1,000 friends each, you could now have a million potential mates and the number keeps growing.
