Facial recognition technology in a dating app to help you date a celebrity look-alike

If you haven’t heard of the dating up Badoo, don’t worry.  Me neither. However, it’s supposed to be this big network of single (?) men and women, with almost 300 million registered users across the globe. And it’s about to rake in more users because of a cool functionality that will soon be embedded within the app; a facial recognition software that tells you and everyone on the network who your celebrity look-alike is.

Users of the app can type in the name of a celebrity and if you’re lucky enough and geographically close enough, you might just land a date that thinks you look like a certain movie or TV personality they really fancy or vice versa.
