Talking Tech - September 6:
Finding love on Facebook, Hacking the CEO of Twitter

Facebook Dating launches in the US

I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say they want another dating app, but here we are. The only plus with this new Facebook Dating app is that they have SO MUCH DATA ABOUT YOU (from when you weren’t knowing you were being profiled for a dating app), that maybe their matching algorithm will be better than any other app?

You need to opt in, you need to create a new profile, then people are presented to you and you can either comment or like their profile. It won’t match you to any of your FB friends, unless both you and them have put you on the ‘secret crush’ list.

Get ready for some fireworks in your social circles!

The head of Twitter was hacked?

Jack Dorsey – the CEO of Twitter – had his phone number stolen and someone was able to tweet via text message some nasty stuff to his millions of followers. So now they’ve turned off the text to tweet feature for everyone. 

How do you get your phone number stolen? Some social engineering and a call to your phone provider.
