The game is based on web comic “Demon House”. The app allows users to create their own profiles and use “sinder” to set up matches.
The catch is that you do not know what gender your opponent has and you can communicate through emojis to show what kind of relationship you are looking for.
The game is free and currently available only in the iOS App Store. Creators of the app receive revenue through a number of ad pop-ups in the app.
Mark Zuckerberg Suggests Internet Security Rules
Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, has shared his opinion on internet security rules in his opinion-editorial for The Washington Post.
There are 4 main rules he distinguished which, basically, all rotate around famous GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation):
- harmful content — there should be a filter or control that decides what content is considered harmful (terrorism propaganda, hate speech and etc);
- legislation is important for protecting elections — the idea is to create common standards for verifying political actors that affect public opinion during elections;
- effective privacy and data protection needs a globally harmonised framework — either all countries adopt GDPR or create a framework similar to it;
- regulation should guarantee the principle of data portability — if you share data with one service, you should be able to move it to another.
