OkCupid reports that users who say they are vaccinated or are planning to get vaccinated are getting 15 percent more likes and 14 percent more matches while having 4.5 percent more conversations.In a White House COVID-19 press briefing Friday, officials highlighted the work of OkCupid and other popular dating apps encouraging users to get vaccinated—with some noticeable giggles intermixed.Senior White House advisor Andy Slavitt awkwardly went through a list of dating apps and vaccination features as chief medical advisor to the president Anthony Fauci, Surgeon General of the United States Vivek Murthy, and Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Rochelle Walensky looked on, sniggering and grinning.“Social distancing and dating were always a bit of a challenging combination,” Slavitt said as he tried unsuccessfully to read pre-written remarks with a straight face. Many will also provide “premium features that I cannot get into but apparently include things like boosts and super swipes.”“All right, got through that,” he said, ending his pre-written remarks.Though the White House was in talks with dating app companies to encourage their efforts, the administration didn’t establish an official partnership with the companies, which collectively reach 50 million people, Slavitt said.
