Okcupid dating profile test Cam2cam free chat no sign up or join

The service has announced that it will require "real" first names in dating profiles (in a tweet it said "You do not need to use your government name or even your full first name"), starting now with an initial test group and rolling out to everyone over time.

As the company explains, it doesn't want the real you to be "hidden beneath another layer of mystique" -- it figures that your profile should offer insight into your personality, not your handle.

“I deleted my account when they made that change,” says former OKC user Kat Stark, 44.

Facebook's initial approach to real names created serious problems for women, the LGBT community and others who are trying to avoid harassers, stalkers and Ok Cupid tells Engadget that it takes privacy "very seriously" and notes that it has taken some steps to make it difficult to creep on others, such as removing profiles from its Google search index.
