The gist: OkCupid is a seriously hip LGBT-friendly site that has won the hearts of millennial and mature singles alike. I've said this a million times before and I'll say it again: OkCupid's advertising is outstanding. They deserve endless applause just for that, but I realize many people on dating apps care about more than the aesthetics. Good thing OkCupid is so much more than that, taking compatibility factors into account that other sites haven't even thought of.
The gist: Grindr is the world's biggest social networking app for gay, bi, trans, and queer people, helping singles get it on since 2009. Because there aren't a ton of women on it, it's usually known as the app for gay men — and at 3.6 million daily users, you could say it's hella popular. Though it's kind of pegged as a hookup app, finding a lasting relationship on here isn't impossible by any means. Just keep in mind that many users you'll come across aren't looking for anything serious.
The Tinder app no longer requires you to have a Facebook account, but you do have to be older than 18. Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo). You can also link your Tinder account to your Instagram, and include info about your employer and/or school. Discovery settings allow other users to find you if desired and set a few preferences regarding who you see. Then the real fun begins.
The bottom line: With the combination of the modern aesthetics and the ability to bond over hating the same thing, I really don't see it taking long for cynical millennials to become obsessed with this. It's still up and coming with a small user base compared to the Tinders and OkCupids of the world, so I wouldn't depend on hater to find me the love of my life just yet. But the premise is too good to pass up, and if you download it now, you'll be able to say "I was on that five months ago," when everyone else finds out about it.

As you might have guessed from the name, coffee beans are the currency of Coffee Meets Bagel, and you earn them through daily logins and other activities. The site is very reward-driven, giving you a limited number of matches each day, based first on the mutual friends you share on Facebook, with the number of matches increasing each consecutive day you log on. With the extra beans you accumulate, you can show interest in another group of potential matches who aren't necessarily your handpicked matches of the day, but with whom you may share common interests. The concept of matching people based on mutual friends isn't new, but because of how the dating platform is designed, it simply works well — as in, without being creepy or overly forward.
Der erste Gedanke ist: „Wie lösche ich dieses Bild aus dem Internet?“ Es ist ein Trugschluss davon auszugehen, dass über Apps verschickte Bilder komplett gelöscht werden. In der Regel befinden sich die Fotos zwar nicht mehr sichtbar an der Oberfläche, werden aber auf einem Server abgelegt. Technikaffine Hacker können, somit das Bild problemlos wiederherstellen und ohne Wissen und Zustimmung des Urhebers illegal weiterverwenden. Ein anderer Faktor sind Ex-Partner, die wutentbrannt ob der gescheiterten Liaison intime Bilder als "Racheakt" veröffentlichen. Eifersucht oder andere Formen des Ärgers können Menschen dazu bringen ganz Persönliches im Internet bekannt zu machen.
