So how are they planning to stop ghosts in their tracks? Part one of their strategy is to offer read receipts.
That way you don’t have to sit there wondering whether someone isn’t writing back simply because they haven’t yet seen your message.Part two is to give access to detailed data on how active your matches (or as they call them, “bagels”) are, so you can know what kind of engagement you can expect from them.And, in beta, they found that more than half of users who made videos were like on that day.And at the very least, even if you don't put yourself on camera, it will help you weed out people with whom you have zero chemistry.Disappearing dates are everywhere these days, and dating apps have gone into full ghost-hunting mode.
Coffee Meets Bagel is the latest app to join the fray.The chat box expires after some days so you must have exchanged contacts if you like the match.You can rematch with bagels or pass them on to friends.It previously distinguished itself by giving women the upper hand, allowing them to select each date from a pool of matches who’ve already expressed interest.Now they’re launching a new premium membership program that offers several features designed to put an end to chats that go nowhere.
