Jack dating app
However, Camacho said neither the FBI nor police have contacted the company.
His staff has been unable to substantiate that Mateen had a profile on Jack'd based on the information they have gleaned from the news media. On Tuesday, Jack’d was approached by a television news show that wanted to schedule a joint interview with West and a spokesperson from the company, said Jack’d director of marketing Kevin Letourneau.
The news show sent Jack’d what was supposed to be a screen shot of Mateen’s profile on the site, which had been sent from one of its sources.
The show wanted to confirm that the image hadn’t been doctored, said Letourneau.
SAN FRANCISCO — The CEO of Jack'd, a Tinder-like gay chat and dating app, says he hasn't been contacted by law enforcement since reports surfaced late Monday Orlando shooter Omar Mateen might have been using the app for at least a year.
The service also hasn't been able to substantiate Mateen had been a member, said Hector Camacho, CEO of Jack'd parent company Online Buddies.
And the court was unimpressed by Herrick’s technical arguments – that Grindr failed to incorporate adequate technical systems to prevent the impersonation.
The app Jack'd is a location-based dating app for men that allows users to post public and private photos in their profile.Grindr filed a motion to dismiss, arguing that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act precluded the suit.Unfortunately for Herrick, the court agreed with Grindr.According to the suit, hundreds of interested Grindr users responded to the false profiles and many of them physically sought out Herrick.Herrick opted not to sue his ex, but instead set his sights on Grindr. Essentially, Herrick claims Grindr is a defectively designed and manufactured product because it lacks built-in safety features; that Grindr misled Herrick into believing it could prevent impersonating profiles or other unpermitted content; and that Grindr wrongfully refused to search for and remove the impersonating profiles.
The company's other sites include Manhunt, a site "for guys to meet online," Dandy, a mobile app for gay men to meet using a "fun, gamified interface" and OLB Research Institute, which coordinates research recruitment and health promotion activities across the Online Buddies sites.
