Looking for Love


If Valentine’s Day left you a little lonely; then turn to your favorite handheld device.

There are two new apps on the market designed to make your search for love a little easier. Released in just the past few months both apps rely on Facebook for their matchmaking capabilities.

The first one; Tinder pulls photos from its member’s Facebook profiles. Anyone looking for a date can then flip through the photos of people nearby to see if anyone sparks their interest. If there’s a mutual attraction the app connects them for a conversation. If not, their feelings remain anonymous protecting user from potential heartbreak.

But if you need more than a pretty smile to make the first move then consider the app; Let’s Date. Rather than just providing someone’s photo it also pulls their interests from their Facebook profile.

Both apps require a Facebook login so people have to use their real identity. For Let’s Date users need to have been active on Facebook for a year and have at least 50 friends. Looks like one isn’t the loneliest number; if you have an iPhone.
