EBONY - Aug 14 - It may look like Tinder, and work like Tinder, but Meld founders Raïssa Tona and Wale Ayeni want to be clear that their new dating app is not the Black Tinder. “We are more than a hookup site,” explains Ayeni. “It is a platform for people looking to date and find somebody special.” Unlike Tinder, members must be vetted through their LinkedIn profiles, have a bachelor’s degree, and be Black. Instead of users explaining who they are, Meld shares their current job title from LinkedIn. Though the platform uses Facebook and LinkedIn info, it never shares activity with those platforms, so discretion is maintained.
