Average App, But Lots of People

I like the diversity of people using the app. Tons of people and a good mix. Plus, you can be listed on MeetMe and see people on there too, so it’s a big community.

The tech is the downside. It has features you’d expect- swiping, matches, etc, but a lot of it is non-functional. I get a “hi” or similar message roughly every 3-5 mins while logged in, but half the time, The person’s name displays as “someone” the message shows as “sent something” and I get a default profile pic. Ergo, even if I’m having a great conversation with someone, I might never find them again in my inbox unless I open dozens of letters. Plus, I can’t search by interests or age or anything- and when someone doesn’t answer their interests, their profile literally says “leave blank.” Sorry, guys, shoddy development. But, it is free, so I will shut the heck up and thank you for letting me use it. It has good bones.

Collusion between developers and adult websites?

The scam operation operates between Turkey, India, and Bangladesh. They have automated bots that notice you’re online and notice when there is inactivity and you’re conveniently sent an automated message. If you reply or even come online again, you get a nude picture and a link to a p*rn or cam site. This is by design. The app has come under fire for sex trafficking, minors falsifying their age, and users have complained that women use the app as a hub to market OnlyFans, adult content, fake Snapchat adult business accounts. It’s a shady operation. It can be examined and laid out just as I have very quickly. The bots that drive users back to the app and generate eyeballs and user time and ad views/revenue as I mentioned make money for people in impoverished countries. There is a sales market for those bots. The nonexistent moderators do not deal with that issue because it drives revenue. There is a reason that ‘moderators’ are elected by users on livestreams. It’s a corrupt operation. It’s part of Match group. Look up their business. A little piece of a business making that kind of money pays a fee for their violations and continues to rake in money. You’re a fool to use this app and you’re a fool if you don’t see what’s going on. Devs - I have an exposé coming out about these issues and how SKOUT/MeetMe make money. You should focus on correcting these issues very soon.

WhyBotsHuh? ,


They randomly banned me out of nowhere for no reason. Couldn’t sign back in at all so I deleted the app. Few weeks go by and I figured I’d try to download it again. I download it and sign back in and continuously nonstop keep getting these spam bot accounts messaging. One after another after another. Well I was talking to someone on live and was trying to figure out a way to get rid of all these bot accounts from messaging me. It was getting VERY annoying. Well I decided that I’d report and block them all, thinking maybe that’ll help. I get off the app. The next day I try logging on and have no access to my account. I had the app for a whole 2 days. Something tells me this app is purposely allowing these bot accounts to be on there in order for them to make money. There’s a lot of people on this app but no as many are you’d think. Half of them are fake/bot accounts, half are old accounts, and then there’s real people. This app is completely trash and whoever runs/manages this app is doing a TERRIBLE job. Imagine only caring about money and not your business. I’d rate this app 0 stars if I could.
