Are Americans ready to trust Facebook with their dating life? Barely more than a month has passed since the U.S. Federal Trade Commission fined Facebook a record $5 billion over its privacy lapses, and imposed a modified corporate structure to hold the company more accountable for its decisions over user privacy.
In the wake of this historic action, Facebook’s brand-new dating product is today launching to all in the U.S., promising to leverage the company’s deep insight into people’s personal data to deliver better matches than rival dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, Match and others.
What could go wrong?
From the first episode of new dating show Pioc do Ride on TG4 last night.
“This is a new dating show where dates are chosen not on personality or looks but on the car that they drive and what’s in it. There’s plenty of mortification and plenty of chuckles.”
Pioc do Ride is on Thursdays, at 10pm on TG4.
