Washington Post journalist Mike Madden was left surprised when his team were sent Slack messages via the dating bot.'Sorry, Slack, this is flattering and all, but I'm married,' he tweeted.'Also, is the whole point of that app to terrify HR people?Feeld advises users of the bizarre bot to 'be nice/don't be a D' and all will be fine (stock image)According to its website at the time, 3nder, pronounced 'threen-der', was geared towards 'all swingers, newbies, curious and experienced' who are 'discriminated by society the same way gay people were 15 years ago'.
Feeld advises users of the bizarre bot to 'be nice/don't be a D' and all will be fine.Like other dating websites, it let users set up a personal profile, where they could list details about themselves and what kind of relationship they were seeking.Users could select a setting to keep their identity hidden from friends and family so they could 'browse freely' on the app's database of potential partners.Slack is explicitly a workplace app, with the tagline on its website reading 'Where work* happens.'The asterisk adds: *'Whatever work means for you, Slack brings all the pieces and people you need together so you can actually get things done.'Experts suggest that Feeld's dating service is simply piggybacking on the chatroom app. Originally marketed as '3nder', the app was touted as the 'Tinder for threesomes' when it was first released in 2014.Slack is a chatroom app used by many tech and media companies, and Feeld is piggybacking on the service to help office crushes connect.
