Best LGBT dating app I’ve used.
Hornet is an awesome app. It by far leads in features, ease of use and safety.
When a user signs-up, they get to set up their profile with multiple photos and a cool feature where you can have up to 4 private photos that you can enable/disable within the messages. I also love the consent of the hornet badge.
This app reminds me of if Instagram and Grindr had a baby and named it hornet. It combines location based profiles with versions filters similar to grindr but also has the ability to search usernames, hashtags, as well as create posts and follow users.
I also love that hornet is constantly working to create a great community where users get rewarded a hornet badge when they are authentic. This is a great concept to help removing bots and and bad people.
Thanks hornet ! 🏳️🌈 💚 💛 💜 🖤 🤍
A nice idea though I don’t see the need to categorize the chats as they are. The main problem are the fakes; at best they waste time, but at worst they’ll scam you out of money and potentially your identity. I don’t know if that’s really possible, but I’m sure lots of folks enable location tags on pics and I know one’s email is linked to many apps, including bank apps. Even if that isn’t a problem, Hornet needs to do more. If I, a user, can find where the same photo has been used in three profiles, then surely a tech company can do the same- and I’ve reported quite a few profiles. I have a photo storage app that automatically identifies and collates pictures of people; why does Hornet do that? I’ve been chatted up by no fewer than FIFTEEN fake scammers in one week. Hornet does offer nice advice on instant protestations of love and “too good to be true” issues, and boy do these fakes deliver there. Military, on a mission but coming home soon, maybe a dog or two... strange though, that a guy supposedly born and raised in the states can’t type in English. It’s more than just grammatically poor, it’s absolutely incomprehensible. Hornet needs to find a way to weed these out somehow. I’ll be deleting my account soon, but I’ve started having fun messing with the fakers’ minds a bit. If all I can find are fakes, I don’t need it.
Lot of fake profiles on these “LGBTQ+” social networking apps. I just recently uncovered a profile on this app using my friend’s photos. It was definitely not my friend and he confirmed it. Of course the fake user was making political discourse... I really think these “LGBTQ+” social apps might be an attempt to make identity politics out to be more popular than it truly is. I used to be more progressive minded, as were a number of my friends, but when you see most real LGBTQ+ people in person are nothing like on these “LGBTQ+” social networks (whom the media doesn’t seem to publicize as much as they do the “elites”), you realize there’s something off about the ebb and flow of these internet social networks. But then this is just for cyberloafer people without real jobs that moreso waste their time online. This is where the propaganda for identity politics flows. In my own experience, I think the discrete political movement to try to propagate our LGBTQ+ community are falling apart, which is good. Their little elite failure groups only have the Internet. All the rest of us are live in person and not buying it. If this wasn’t true, then these app developers would fix the spam problem, but obviously they could care less, and We the LGBTQ+ People are aware of all the fake internet posers.
