Video dating sites
“You’re showing off so much more of yourself than if you just posted a selfie.You’re showing your flaws, your personality, the real you — and that can be terrifying.” Lively launched in 2016 under the umbrella of Zoosk, an online dating site and mobile app; Behrouzi also acts as the company’s senior vice president of product.The frames have more purpose than beautifying a self-portrait. Behrouzi calls video dating largely uncharted territory, but points to Snapchat’s success as an admirable model. “With Lively, you’re posting/sending videos to people you don’t know, which can be intimidating.” Video has the potential to make the vetting process easier, says Marcel Cafferata, creator of 2012 video app Video Date.Instead of posing stoically or fretting over what selfies to use in a profile, the app tries to encourage users to be performative with frames like “My Donald Trump impression.” It’s not the first thing that comes to mind for friendly and flirty, but it is, at the very least, a conversation starter. Cafferata says that the downside to apps like Tinder is that photos only offer a static look at that person.Services like Twitter use a stringent verification process, for those they see fit to award the notorious blue checkmark.Many dating apps already require connecting to Facebook — which, in recent years, has cracked down on fake accounts — to semi-verify someone’s ID.Even newer apps, like Hater or Wingman, stick to photos.The limitation is at odds with the flood of video onto Instagram, Whats App, and Facebook, following the rise in popularity of Snapchat.
Cafferata says that catfishing was the impetus behind Video Date. As the old saying goes, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.In March, Lively introduced Quickies, a Snapchat-like feature that allows users to record short clips of themselves with frames and filters.Behrouzi says the company wants to people to have fun..action_button.action_button:active.action_button:hover.action_button:focus.action_button:hover.action_button:focus .count.action_button:hover .count.action_button:focus .count:before.action_button:hover .count:before.u-margin-left--sm.u-flex.u-flex-auto.u-flex-none.bullet.
