Meanwhile, behemoth Tinder, despite banning the solicitation of “personal information from anyone under the age of 18,” openly welcomes underage users: In fact, in February 2014, Tinder’s Justin Mateen bragged that more than 7 percent of all users are between 13 and 17. “There needs to be, in my opinion, greater responsibility on the part of app creators and developers,” said Donna Rice Hughes, the president and CEO of the Internet safety group Enough Is Enough.“They are creating an opportunity for strangers to meet each other, and they’re not recognizing that in those situations young people are particularly vulnerable.” To their credit, of course, most of these apps do claim to segregate the over-18s from the under-18s.
They claim to be the only site promoting this sort of relationship - I thought everyone liked puppy love! If you have this very specific profession in mind for your husband, a match is waiting to be made. Are singles on other sites too concerned about life when all you think about is death? A woman in prison would meet all of those qualifications, right?
In fewer than three minutes, two teenagers “chatted” me, trying to trade pics. And under section 230 of the Communications Decency Act — the critical Internet legislation that basically allowed social networks to exist — a site operator can’t be held responsible for the misdeeds of its users, except in a couple very narrow circumstances.
In 2006, for instance, a Texas mother sued Myspace for gross negligence after her 13-year-old daughter met a 19-year-old man on the site and was sexually assaulted.
But, there’s actually a whole slew of other dating apps that may be even more useful for you. The one drawback of the location focus is that after a bad date, you risk an awkward run in at the gym.
There are apps that bring together people with similar nerdy interests, apps designed for encounters even more casual than what Tinder delivers, and profile-heavy apps that really get into the specifics of users’ personalities. Bumble is like Tinder, but with all the power in the ladies’ thumbs, and far fewer inappropriate pics.
But that’s just a claim: There are no visible safeguards in place.
