When Facebook Bans Your Startup

Dating apps are not allowed to advertise on Facebook. Unless you’re approved.

How do you get approved?

This, apparently: “The Policy team will contact you directly with an answer within 30 days.”

Fact: I’ve been waiting for the Policy team to contact me since August 2015. That’s six months ago!

I get it. There are a lot of dating apps. But would you ban this?

Or this?

Have you seen a dating app like this?

We’re not your regular dating app. We’re made for artists, techies, and NPR enthusiasts. For people who listen to Serial on a religious basis. Shout out to Sarah Koenig. We love the second season even more!

We like to think that we are the HBO of dating apps. Literally and figuratively.

HeyU let’s you tell your story and show off your personality in 15 second clips or less. We can’t guarantee no creeps, but we can guarantee a more fun and positive dating experience. We’re building an app that tries to bring out the best in people.

All we need is a fighting chance!
