“Coffee Meets Bagel”: Online dating site with a twist

There are quite a number of dating sites out there for those individuals who would like to meet their match online. What separates one site from the other is the type of service that they offer to their clientele and out of these world ideas that are original from that site.

“Coffee Meets Bagel” is an online dating site that tries to shake up the online dating world by letting users have some fun while looking for their potential partner.

Each day at noon users of “Coffee Meets Bagel” are sent one match they call “bagel”. Users then have 24 hours to decide if they want to get to know the other person better by going out on a date with him/her. If they do, they only have to click “yes”, if they don’t then click “pass”.

According to one of the founders of “Coffee Meets Bagel”, Arum Kong said, “Our model is unique in that the match is exclusive to one another. So if you are matched with Ed, let’s say, you see his profile for 24 hours while Ed sees your profile for 24 hours. And after the 24th hour, the match disappears and you might never connect with this person again! I think there’s something very serendipitous and powerful to that. It gets people to engage more.”

Facebook to roll out Hate Button

According to TechCrunch, Facebook is going to roll out its Hate button in response to the billions of likes being generated each day by the social networking site. They also reported that the latter is considering adding other buttons including Meh, Love, Who Cares and +11.

And oh by the way, Happy April Fool’s Day.

According to the TechCrunch, “When the original like button was announced, Facebook Co-founder and Chief Executive officer Mark Zuckerberg made a bold prediction that there would be more than 1 billion likes across the Web in just the first 24 hours. Sources at Facebook say mark is estimating 2 billion hates on the first day. Facebook studies have shown the sad fact that people hate things on the Internet more than they like things. There’s also an internal debate onwhether the new button should be called ‘hate’ or ‘dislike’.

Other buttons under consideration are the ‘meh’, ‘love,’ who cares,’ and ‘+11’ but there is also a fear this could lead to a button explosion.

Our sources say the hate button is not a sure thing. It’s being heavily debated inside the social networking company. This new feature would fit with Facebook’s mission to ‘build tools to help people connect with the people they want and share what they want,’ whether that’s love or hate.”

Many individuals were happy upon reading that report from TechCrunch as people would love to hit the “hate” or “dislike” button. But will the social networking site roll out the said button? We really don’t know.
