I'd welcome back to on the -- the B team is in the chair once again I'm Mike Tobin.
And that's Valentine's Day as you know -- of those if you don't know who don't have a Valentine.
The -- world with the iPhone is coming to your aid to find you.
Love and I want to figure out how all this works and I want to bring in Sean ran as the CEO of Tinder.
And itinerary you've got a new app that will help people flirt who are hopeless in socially socially inadequate.
I wouldn't call -- an -- for hopeless or socially inadequate people but.
I would say tender it is a way to help you connect with the world around you and fight how they gonna want that your interest and it.
So we do is we we show you people in -- area.
We suggest people you might like based on a bunch of things we learn about you.
And only -- simply safer interest have been somebody if somebody your interest in is actually interest in and you back.
Then we create a match and -- -- to talk to them with an app.
So eats it's not for I think it's sort of it's for any one.
-- single and wants to find somebody in -- area that that they connect with and that they may be shared interest with whether it's friends.
Common friends are.
Common likes or whatever it is and and we sort of surface that up and bring -- people to you.
-- so how is this different than than other online dating.
So most online -- apps or sites.
Allow you to message anyone can communicate with anyone which could get a little weird for for people because.
You have random people messaging -- -- -- -- does it limits every interaction.
To a situation where two people have said that their interest in each other.
So you can't communicate with anyone unless you have expressed your interest in them and they have.
Mutually express an interest back so everything has a BMW sort of starts at a heights and -- So you have to upload a picture you have to upload information about yourself what you like what you don't like and somehow the computers starts creating a -- and and and sending it to -- that here at.
So right so the beauty -- the beauty of it is that you just log in with FaceBook and we automatically capture all that information so with one click.
We know everything we need to know about you.
And -- we show you people in your area you tell us who you like and if that person likes you back.
Then we create a match and you guys can talk.
-- you know we're talking about this on a day -- -- -- would talk about this on a date when another congressman is in trouble for a posting messages to a girl who.
On on Twitter you know the story about that representative Anthony Weiner everyone knows that one by now sure -- it is the question here is is this thing gonna create a footprint are we gonna see more scandals.
I don't think Tinder is changing anything about the society I think were were were making what we already do -- even more simple and more efficient so.
If someone's inclined.
-- you know get themselves involved in -- scandal I don't think tenders that's certainly going to change that that's inevitable it's going to happen.
I just that tend to think tender provides a new medium for people to communicate and connect.
-- in -- both of those congressman got in trouble because they thought they're sending a private message.
And -- ultimately hit a public message and and trying to backtrack from there so that dictator communications would all be private between you.
And someone who was agree that they want to talk to.
-- -- Now see -- if he said he sent a message to someone and you say why mission talking to you and then she says no.
That is that's that's daily she knows a year -- shouldn't talk in Orange and she's got some background information and you -- there is still a little bit of -- -- ranked.
So no actually so the beauty of -- is it's fallen on the -- until the point that someone you move like his like he backs so.
What we've done is we've sort of eliminated the rejection involved with dating whether it's real world dating -- online dating.
By by you know by not telling you when someone has rejected you and simply making it.
Sort of a numbers game of some of -- of mutual interests.
We sort of eliminated that fear factor that's that's involved with dating in general.
Now we really are your listeners saying solving problem.
The who S are we we see ourselves as solving problems in deep with dating in general not necessarily up solving problems with online dating.
All right go tendered dot com is where you can check it out for yourself -- a kinder gentler world of dating thank you very much on rent for rent -- here.
