DAILY VOICE - Dec 16 - Glen Rock's Joe Acosta is an app developer at OkCupid. He played an integral part in rolling out the company's new, experimental open messaging system. "Our old system was a completely open messaging system," said Acosta. "Anyone could send multiple messages to anyone and the messages would go straight to the recipient's Messages Screen." With the new OkCupid messaging system, users will only see messages if they choose to go to the sender's profile, after noticing that the person has messaged them. If the receiver decides that they're not interested in that person, they can pass on reading the message. The change came after many OkCupid users reported that they were so inundated with messages that sifting through them became an unimaginably stressful task.
