TECH CRUNCH - Inner Circle, a global dating app, is trying to put a stop to the hurtful online dating experience where people cut off contact with another person without any warning or explanation. Inner Circle dubbed this new group of features "The Date Conscious Suite." The new toolset includes things like anti-ghosting reminders, end conversation options, closure messages, pinned conversations, and decision prompts. Match Group announced a feature in 2021 that nudges users suspected of ghosting so the user can unmatch or send a message that they're not interested. Also, Hinge has a "Your Turn" feature that reminds users when it's their turn to respond. The video-first dating app, Snack, has an anti-ghosting feature that reports users that ghost too frequently. The more someone ghosts, the less a user's profile gets seen. There's even an anti-ghosting dating app called Elate, specifically designed with features that help prevent ghosting.
