Free friends chat housewife
Yes, there’s a Slack for dating, though it’s unclear how many people participate, and the group did not invite me to join after I signed up, a process that involved–like an old AOL chat room A/S/L inquiry–merely reporting my first name, gender, and age.I found the dating group, and 350 other Slack groups, on a website called Chit Chats (it was initially called “Slack Chats,” but changed its name at the request of Slack).The couple created a fake company name, “The Kennedys,” to sign up for the two-member Slack chat that has replaced i Message for them as the way they discuss everything, from coordinating childcare to potential Ikea purchases. Occasionally a consumer-facing product like Dropbox expands into the workplace, but rarely do people bring tools designed for their companies into their personal lives. Users have appropriated the platform for extracurricular use cases like staying in touch with groups of friends, backchanneling at events, and creating chat rooms around interests like books or entrepreneurship–or dating.“Fifty percent of my Slack communication is work, and 50% of my slack communication is nonwork at this point,” says Todd, who also uses Slack to keep in touch with a group of Brooklyn-based programmers. In addition to being a place to work, Slack is becoming a virtual hangout spot.It’s a lot less friction mentally to want to say something.” The Cocoa Heads use the chat primarily to discuss coding problems, but they also have channels for “off-topic” conversations and, of course, animated gifs.That casual “at a bar” dynamic may also be what led at least one enterprising Slack user to start a Slack for dating.
Todd Kennedy, a 37-year-old CTO at a software startup, also uses the service–to talk with his wife, Julie. And it’s always open.”This is a very odd way for someone to talk about enterprise software.They are waiting by their computers to chat and get naked with you.
