If you’ve ever wished there was a way to play matchmaker for your Facebook friends, a new Matchmaker app is here to help make it happen. It comes from the folks at the dating app Hinge and it allows you to meddle in the love lives of your Facebook friends who are already using the app.
Here’s how it works: once you download the app, you can see your Facebook friends who are currently cruising for love on Hinge. That’s a little creepy for those who want to keep their private lives private, but they can opt out of this feature if they want to. Otherwise, their nosy friends can help them make love connections.
And there are a few different ways this app can help you set your buddies up. You can have Matchmaker suggest couples for you to approve, you can choose a friend to find dates for, or you can pick a couple and connect them. As the matchmaker, you can send an icebreaker message to get things going. But they have to take it from there.
This app sounds like a lot of fun for the friends who want to help hook their friends up, but for the unsuspecting Hinge users who have no idea this Matchmaker app exists, it could be a drag. So if you’re using Hinge and don’t want everyone you’re Facebook friends with to be able to peek into your love life, you might want to opt out before your ex or your boss has the chance.
