Other snarky thoughts:

“Facebook Dating. Yeah, I seem to remember that back in the day. It was called MySpace.”

“Fantastic. More excuses for creepy people to stalk you on facebook.”

Cory wasn’t writing dystopian science fiction … he was writing a cookbook!

Not directly. There’s another app called Hinge that more explicitly relies on Facebook data.
