In the past few weeks, you may have noticed that we’ve been asking for permission to access some of your FaceBook (FB) information. Specifically, your photos, your profile info, and your friends’ profile info.
Naturally, you maybe wondering “Why?” Some of you may even feel wary about these changes. We wanted to take the time to explain why.
Our primary goal here is to make your experience at Coffee Meets Bagel (CMB) as easy & seamless as possible. Every piece of information we collect will ONLY be used to achieve this.
For example, having access to your photos will enable us to auto-populate your FB profile photos as CMB profile photos so you do not have to manually upload them. We can also auto-fill some information about your interests and likes on your CMB profile to save you time. Right now, many members do not have time to upload more than one photo or fill out their profile in detail. Unfortunately, “lack of Information” is the #1 reason for our Bagels being PASSed.
And your friends’ profile? This will enable us to make more friends of friends (of friends) introductions to you!
In the end, ONLY YOU will be the ultimate decider of what of your FB information you will share on CMB. If you do not want any of your FB profile photos as CMB photos, you can choose to delete them and manually upload your own photos. We just want to be able to offer you the option, to make things easy for you.
Let us know if you have any questions.
