Online Match Making

Many Muslims these days find their future spouse online. Please use due diligence. Don’t neglect having a wali...or wali team. Don’t neglect warning signs. The popular dating app Tinder has been transformed into a tool to combat domestic violence with a new social media campaign reminding women that even the most promising of relationships can get ugly in an instant.

Miami–based ad agency Bravo/Y&R helped Women in Distress, a domestic violence center in Florda, raise awareness for the issue with Tinder Beater; by creating fake profiles for three ‘abusive’ men, the organization was able to engage hundreds of users in conversation, while urging women to get help at the first sign of violence.

A video for the new campaign, which debuted last week, shows how users who swipe through the fictional men’s photo albums get a first–hand look at how quickly a guy can go from nice to violent – with the images descending from friendly and smiling to cruel and aggressive in a matter of swipes. Full Story.
