Clip dating video
Bumble – which only allows women to make the first move when swiping and chatting – will allow users to create 10-second videos that will vanish after 24 hours.
“This video adds to the negative stereotype about Asian men that they are undateable.
“We are seen as outsiders in our own homes.” According to a Tinder employee who wishes to remain anonymous, the login video was part of an “A/B testing” exercise in several countries and areas – Hong Kong included – for updates on Tinder’s login page.
This means potential mates can watch each other live before deciding to meet up.
Videos can be edited and filters, location and tagging will be added soon, Bumble confirmed.
Christian, 19, said of the video experience: “I can’t say for sure if i’ve had more attention due to my videos, but they are way cooler than photos and a better reflection of who I am.“I’m much more likely to chat to people with videos on their profile.“It’s a fun platform for creativity.”Badoo are also hoping to save their users time with the short films, as they will be able to tell if they truly fancy someone before wasting time on a date.
Speaking about the innovation, Badoo spokeswoman Joey Hadfield said: “With the addition of video, daters can get creative and show off their sense of humor, their wonderfully sophisticated British accent, tennis skills, or even their twerking skills.“When you go on a date, you know within seconds if you like a person’s energy, and if you don’t, you’re still stuck there all night.“Video gives you a much better feel for who people are before you agree to meet them.”The new video clips on Badoo are revealed as scientists claim bald men are sexier than those with hair.
Tinder has come under fire over a Hong Kong login video that shows a white woman accepting all her potential matches apart from the one Asian man on her feed.
Critics say the dating app is perpetuating the stereotype that Asian men are unattractive.
And since they're short, they hopefully won't devolve into the hilariously awkward 1980s online dating videos you can find on You Tube.
