At Facebook's annual developer conference on Tuesday, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the company will roll out its own dating app later this year. With the Facebook data breach still fresh in everyone's mind, and the fates of companies like Match.com and Tinder in the balance, questions about what the future of online dating abound. We ask our listeners: Would you use Facebook's dating app? Why or why not? And, what would you like to see companies do better when it comes to dating apps?

Guests:
Elizabeth Dwoskin, Silicon Valley correspondent, The Washington Post
Megan Murray, senior content strategist, Zoosk online dating
Chelsea Reynolds, assistant professor, Department of Communications, California State University, Fullerton
