The famous social gay app Blued giving LGBTTQQIAAP (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, ally, pansexual) a community to share their interest and meet new friends. According to Wikipedia, Millions of users love the app, one of the best features is Groups and it is available for users to join depending on their interests or location.
Sadly, this feature will be shut down according to their Facebook Page and received a private message from the mobile app.
In the screenshot, It say
In the screenshot, Blued Team announces “We are sorry to inform you, the “Group” feature on Blued will be closed down in September.
From August, “Group” features will be closed down gradually.
Take your last chance to say Hi to the guys in your Groups. Don’t let Mr Right slip away”.
After receiving this message, Lot of friends in this app gives their sentiments about it and asking reasons which never specified by the company. As a registered member, I compiled users’ thoughts and here are the top 3 reasons.
Most of the users I spoke are disappointed on this announcement. They thought it is an April’s fool message but not.
2) Gender Acceptance
I am not sure if “Gender Acceptance” is the best word to describe. Unfortunately, many users identify themselves as a discreet man or straight. These users easily get offended, annoyed, upset or hurt when they classified them as gay or bisexual. Now, I am wondering why they are in this app in the first place.
3) Sending nude or private photo.
Well, I will not be biased. Most of the people get curious when they receive a private photo which you need to click first to view and when you hold out the media file automatically deleted. I am not sure if this is misused by many but I am sure users liked it. Get real guys! Maybe, they don’t like little banana or not so good looking content on it. Peace!
For the fair judgement, I will send an email to the support team and ask their reasons why they come upon this decision. Or else, you have a unique idea on your mind. You can comment it below.
