OKCupid Testing Roommate Finding Apps

Could OKCupid help you find a roommate instead of romance?

SocialTimes broke the news that OKCupid has been testing a service to connect roommates via new apps. SocialTimes editor Devon Glenn outlined the program on the Morning Media Menu. Check it out:

OKCupid is beta-testing a housemate-matching service on an undisclosed domain, according to co-founder and CEO Sam Yagan. Asked about a job posting for a position at OKCupid Labs that described the labs’ work building “apps that help you use your data to discover new people for housing, careers and more,” Yagan confessed that the company is testing a housemate matching service. The company will not put housemate hunting as an option on its dating site; the two will remain separate, Yagan said.
