Netflix dating site
Dating is already stressful enough, so a calm, straightforward interface is refreshing.
Your Yoke matches aren’t just other users as with most dating sites — they’re any friends of your Facebook friends who list themselves as “Single” and live nearby.
For comparison, the much-ballyhooed dating app Tinder has an estimated 50 million users worldwide (the company hasn't released official figures).
Combining the audiences certainly presents advantages for people looking for someone with shared interests — or at least mutual interest in Netflix and dating.
A proposed app hopes to skip the pleasantries and get to the most important online dating question: what shows do you like to stream?Yoke is a Facebook app that introduces you to people you might like.” If you’re shy about contacting someone you can ask a mutual friend to introduce you.Once your crush confirms with that friend that they want to meet you, your friend can send an introduction and kick off a message thread.Yoke was founded by ex-Huffington Post social media editor Rob Fishman, and Jeff Revesz who sold his company Adaptive Semantics to Huff Po in 2009. You connect to its app and it automatically pulls your Facebook profile and sexual orientation.It’s backed by a 0,000 seed round led by Lerer Ventures and joined by Soft Bank Capital. While most dating sites give you an overwhelming set of browsing options, Yoke just immediately starts showing you potential matches.
