Dating app celebrates 50m users with mapping feature
Popular dating app Happn has unveiled a new interactive mapping feature after celebrating its 50 million-user milestone.
Launched in the UK in 2014, happn uses geolocation technology to help daters find people they’ve crossed paths with, sat next to on a train or spotted from afar.
The new mapping feature will give users the opportunity to tap any location they’ve visited over the past seven days and find other people that were nearby.
"The crossing of paths between two people has always been the DNA of happn," said co-founder and CEO Didier Rappaport.
"With happn maps, we go further in our promise by separating the dimensions of space and time, because time flies, but places stay still!
"The profiles are no longer only sorted in chronological order and in real time but also according to your place of geographical crossings."
The launch coincides with the announcement of happn having 50 million users worldwide, which founder Rappaport described as "an incredible achievement for the team".
Happn map will be available for people to use next month.
