Online dating media
Coffee Meets Bagel is one of the most innovative and interesting of them all.
Dating sites are social by default, but their level on interactivity is rather limited to "matches" calculated by relationship algorithms.
It's not enough for the receiver of the "Bagel" to like the deal - he or she needs to be liked back for a bridge of communications to be established.
When reciprocity is achieved, the two can meet in real life, at a local restaurant, and CMB sweetens the deal by offering the couple a free appetizer, coffee or dessert.
Privacy filters ensure that professional profiles are only revealed to selected groups like certain industries and so on.
The service monetizes partially by charging a fee to unlock someone's profile via a credit system.
