OKCupid's new feature

Hey [name],

We've got a quick site improvement to share.

You can now hide your OkCupid profile from straight users. This means straight people can't find you in match results (even if they search for bisexual women), and they can't load your profile page.

Why turn this privacy setting on?

* maybe you're not out to everyone yet
* maybe you don't want straight dudes hitting on you
* maybe you enjoy clicking checkboxes on web pages

All of these are good reasons to take advantage of this new feature.

If you'd like to activate it, just log in automatically and click-to-edit your orientation on your profile.

Thank you for using OkCupid and please let us know how we can keep improving. Then tell your friends how sweet we are.

Best,
OkStaff

This isn't from an article, it's actually from my inbox... OKC's been discussed several times on ontd_p for different filtering and stats they've posted, so I hope this is relevant and an acceptable submission. :D
