Social network “VKontakte” has decided to temporarily close its new dating service after complaints from users.
Many of the registered members of “VKontakte” found that on the basis of their data profiles for “VK Dating” were created. Information from profiles was added to the questionnaires, including places of work and study, habits, as well as photos, including those already removed from the profiles.
In addition, for users who concealed their date of birth, the zodiac sign corresponding to this date was displayed in the questionnaire.
Some of the people who did not create profiles on the “VK Dating” service, received messages with offers of acquaintances and meetings.
Currently, the page at vk.com/dating displays the message: “The application is disabled and available only to administrators.”
Development Director, VK Super Application Development Director Anton Tsivarev wrote on his page that the company was forced to “suspend it [сервиса “VK Знакомства” – ред.] work, study in detail all complaints and analyze the causes of the current situation. “
