You remember the side chick detector i wrote on earlier on, guess what? more than 500 cheating husbands have deleted their accounts on the dating app Hinge after the company revealed that it had introduced a new feature which informs users whether a prospective date is already in a relationship, by publishing details from their Facebook information.
Just few days after the informative new feature was unveiled, more than 450 men have already deactivated their accounts. 'We see a natural attrition rate week to week, but this was nearly 40per cent higher than normal for men,' Hinge’s VP of Marketing Karen Fein told Daily Mail Online.
'Women, on the other hand, seemed to appreciate the news, with 26per cent more than normal joining.'
Hinge's latest update enables users catch potential cheaters by informing them if the person they are chatting to is already in a relationship.
In an effort to remain 'a trusted place for finding relationships', the dating app's latest version will automatically add a user's Facebook relationship status of 'single', 'engaged' or 'in a relationship' to their Hinge profile. The app has billed itself as a more relationship-friendly alternative to the 'hook-up' app Tinder because it focuses on matches that have mutual friends through Facebook.
According to the company's own research, only 3.6per cent of Hinge users are off the market – meaning that, in theory, only a small number of users should have concerns about the app’s latest update.
Hinge does not release user numbers, but a spokesperson claims that Hinge is creating roughly 40,000 dates per week, and roughly 2,000 people get in relationships per week by using the app.
