A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

Because Facebook already doesn’t have enough of our data, now Mark Zuckerberg wants to play matchmaker and help find you a date.

At the Facebook F8 developer conference, Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will be rolling out later this year a new dating feature that will help you find a long-term relationship and not just a hookup.

It will only match you with people that are not your friends. It will instead match you with other singles in groups or events you plan to attend in your area.

Your friends will not be able to view your dating profile.

With the recent data scandal Facebook faced with the 2016 election, what could possibly go wrong when users hand over their very personal relationship wants, needs, and desires data to them?

Surely this data won’t ever be sold to advertisers or the website hacked and your personal data exposed.

Call me old fashion, but I trust Cupid more than a Facebook algorithm.  Especially with my personal data.
