It was only a matter of time. I’ve long maintained that these social sites are simply breeding grounds for inappropriate intimate emotional interaction that eventually can lead to physical affairs. It happens every day somewhere in America. Facebook is often sited as the gateway to cheating and divorce.
Well, now there’s an app to speed up the process.
A controversial new Facebook app shows users of the social network which of their online friends are prepared to meet up for no-strings attached sexual encounters.
Bang With Friends claims to help users ‘anonymously find friends who are down for the night’ by pairing up any that are both attracted to each other.
However, doubt has been cast over how anonymous the app really is, since it has an apparent loophole which shows prospective users which of their friends are already using it before signing up.
Bang Your Friends: A new Facebook app claims to offer an anonymous method of finding which of your online friends are prepared to meet you for sexual liaisons
Logging into the app shows a screen filled with the profile pictures of your Facebook friends of the opposite sex – it appears to be designed exclusively for heterosexual pairings.
Beneath each of the profiles listed sits a button labelled ‘Down to Bang’ which users can click to indicate that they are sexually interested in the friend in question.
Clicking the button switches its label to ‘Awaiting Bang’ but will not notify them of your interest. Unless, that is, they are also users of the app and have also clicked the button beneath your face too.
If that happens, then the app will send a notification email to the address listed on your Facebook account informing you that you have a match.
