Step 1: get dating apps to build themselves on your platform's data Step 2: cut them off from your platform's data with no warning Step 3: build a competitor to dating apps with the data you are now keeping to yourself Seems kinda antitrust-ish...
The world’s largest social network is adding dating app features

Hard to say blindsided. Platform risk 101. Trade-off you accept when you benefit from distribution + data of an established platform

As a company started as a hot-or-not site, I'd say this is the smallest surprise ever

As luck would have it we rolled out FB-free registration last week! There are lots of great people at FB, and I'd hope this is more BigCo clumsiness than anything else, but whether it's clumsiness or something else, founders should think twice before building on FB in 2018.

I think the last time I got quoted by Gruber was 2011 for some design post on close buttons in iOS (vs webOS). Two tech lifetimes ago 🙃

That only verifies that the person took the photo. What about verifying who a person IS?

I'm curious how you feel Facebook benefitted from Step 1 in a way that made Step 3 possible?

They cut off the ability to grab profile data of your connections, but not things like Facebook login and bootstrapping a profile off of Facebook data.

E.g. from NPR today, zoosk still offers Facebook login and finds that valuable.
