Swipe right for negative self perception, says research into Tinder users | Science | The Guardian
Tinder users were more dissatisfied with their bodies and more likely to objectify their appearances than those who did not use the app, study shows [...] “People are living in a surreal world, creating these unattainable ideals and expectations that no one can meet,” said lead author Jessica Strübel of the University of North Texas. “It’s creating a 24/7 constant need for impression and appearance management.”

Pando: Hot or Not founder responds to Nancy Jo Sales' new book: "I don’t think we invented human nature"
Nearly every tweet I’ve read about Nancy Jo Sales’ new book “American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers” has been some variation of “I’m scared to read this.” Indeed by page 20, I started making plans to move to an Amish village by the time my daughter turns 12. The deeper I read, the more I was impressed by many of the young women Sales interviewed, and the more sorry I felt that we've given them this world.  [...] Sales also describes how young girls worship Kim Kardashian and derive their self worth from how many likes they get on Instagram.

Dating apps prove factor in HIV rise among adolescents - BBC News
"It's not just one to one, it's one to many, so the risks of acquiring HIV go up." Although there is no evidence directly linking apps to HIV infection rates, their increasing prevalence means there is a "need to sound alarm bells", she adds. Adolescence is traditionally a time when teenagers engage in risky behaviour and look to experiment and gain more independence.

Tinder Founder Sean Rad Returns as CEO, Replacing Chris Payne | Re/code
In an interview, board member and Benchmark partner Matt Cohler said that Payne did not turn out to be a good “fit” for the company, and so it was decided to move quickly. “It became clear after a few months that it wasn’t going to become a long-term fit. It’s only been a few months, but everyone came to the realization, the board and Christopher, and all agreed it wouldn’t work out long-term,” said Cohler. “Given that, we thought we might as well take action on this sooner than later.” With Payne as CEO, Rad had become president and was in charge of product and marketing at Tinder. It was thought that the company needed stronger leadership after a series of internal issues that had caused worry at IAC.

Ashley Madison: Is infidelity a billion-dollar business? - BBC News
Second time This isn't the first time Mr Biderman and Avid Life Media - Ashley Madison's parent company, which also runs the websites CougarLife.com, EstablishedMen.com, and TheBigandtheBeautiful.com - have sought a public share sale. In 2011, the company attempted to list in its home city of Toronto, but was ultimately forced to withdraw its offering when the Toronto Stock Exchange and investors baulked at the proposition. Mr Biderman chalks the failure up to squeamishness and timing. The site, which is now in 46 countries and has 30 million global members, was only in the US and Canada then. He thinks London is a better bet because the city is more comfortable with "sin or controversial businesses". "Business for the most part should have one goal in society - investor return. They're not there for social endeavours," he says. In other words, European investors might be willing to overlook a few things if the top line figures look good. // bbc.in/1IW3mfQ

Tinder hooks up with Instagram in a perfect match of two rose-tinted, narcissistic apps | PandoDaily
keeping up with the Jones has reached a new low with FB, Instagram, Tinder and Co. // "Instagram isn’t about reality – it’s about a well-crafted fantasy, a highlights reel of your life that shows off versions of yourself that you want to remember and put on display in a glass case for other people to admire and browse through. It’s why most of the photographs uploaded to Instagram are beautiful and entertaining slices of life and not the tedious time in-between of those moments, when bills get paid, cranky children are put to bed, little spats with friends."

Dating-App Tinder: Sex per Chat - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[ Busy Busy Buys, always something doing, needed, planning, on the fast lane ... ] Nichts gegen Vögeln um die Ecke, aber erstens geht das wunderbar ohne Handy und zweitens habe ich die Theorie, dass Paarungsplattformen vor allem deshalb gut besucht sind, weil sich die Menschen miteinander vom Leben ablenken. Es geht vielen vielleicht gar nicht so sehr um Sex, geschweige denn um ein reales Gegenüber, sondern um digitale Beschäftigung. Warum mag niemand mehr allein sein? Damit meine ich nicht nur nachts im Bett allein, sondern auch tagsüber an der Bushaltestelle allein. Oder abends im Klub. Einfach mal rumstehen und etwas denken. Oder fühlen. Nö. Lieber tippen. [...] Es herrscht die stille Übereinkunft, kurzfristig mit einem Bild überzeugen zu müssen - nicht mit dem eigenen Wesen oder möglicherweise gemeinsamen Hobbys. Und das Versprechen ist wichtig.

Hook-up Apps Are Destroying Gay Youth Culture | TIME
Many dating apps help perpetuate what people scorn about LGBT: promiscuity, impersonal behavior, and compromised interpersonal connection. [...] But instead of advancing the gay agenda of inclusion, I found the apps to perpetuate what people scorn about LGBT: promiscuity, impersonal behavior, and sexually motivated conversations. This is not the fault of the LGBT community, but these depersonalized conversations are what lead to depersonalized relationships. When an introduction to gay culture is through a sex-based app, it perpetuates the sex-based stereotype. Because LGBT still face shame and disownment, our coming out is plagued with fear that we will lose those we love, which leads to a shame-based idea of relationships. Each dating app focuses on a different demographic[/target audience.] [...] Most importantly, K-12 children should be taught about sexual orientation in an open, direct, and engaging way encouraging normalcy and assimilation.

Sascha Lobo über die Macht der Mädchen im Internet - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Aber tatsächlich hat das Verhalten insbesondere amerikanischer, weiblicher Teenager großen Einfluss auf Netz- und Medienkonzerne. Denn das Herz der Technologiewelt schlägt inzwischen "social", und junge Mädchen benutzen soziale Medien deutlich intensiver als alle anderen Gruppen. [...] Jüngstes Beispiel ist die Einführung von Stickern auf Facebook, also kleinen, meist niedlich gemeinten Bildchen, mit denen man Beiträge kommentieren kann. Das koreanisch-japanische Netzwerk Line, eine Mischung aus Twitter und WhatsApp mit Facebook-Elementen, hat eine junge, eher weibliche Nutzerschaft; dort ist dieses sehr visuelle Kommunikationsprinzip Sticker groß geworden: Emoticons auf Speed. Nebenbei gibt es interessante Theorien dazu, dass die verwandten Emojis die erste echte, weltweit funktionierende Sprache seien. & http://pando.com/2014/10/08/quartz-coins-the-venmo-line-reminding-us-that-the-under-30-crowd-lives-in-a-totally-different-digital-world/

BBC News - Diane Abbott: British culture 'increasingly pornified'
'Pressure to conform' +++ It's hyper-sexualized British culture in which women are objectified, objectify one another, and are encouraged to objectify themselves.” Diane Abbott MP (Shadow public health minister) +++ "Parents and teachers have a duty to ensure that children develop a healthy view of sexuality, distinct from this porn version that is swamping and infiltrating British life. Because it's a very specific form of sexuality that's being imposed, on children and adults: a porn version. This is what kids are dealing with on a daily basis. "Young people are accessing far harder pornographic images than 10 or 15 years ago." +++ Sex education should be "revolutionised" to better prepare young people for "healthy, respectful, emotionally fulfilling relationships" and deal with issues of self-esteem. +++ "commercialisation of childhood"
