Dating Service Wants To Make Sure You Never Have Another “Missed Connection”
Happn's new feature lets users expand their potential pool of dates
Today’s online dating scene features a myriad of apps and sites designed to help users meet potential partners, but Happn wants to narrow your pool of connections to those you’ve crossed paths with previously.
The app uses geolocation technology to keep tabs on other Happners who visit the same restaurants, frequent the same coffeeshops or relax in the same bars as you and your friends, and then gives you the option to contact those missed connections.
Happn’s newest feature, dubbed “See You There,” allows users to preemptively share the activities they’re planning on taking part in on a given day—from going to the gym to grabbing a latte—and encourage their Happn matches to join them.
