OkCupid Launches Badge That Enables Daters To Filter For Planned Parenthood Supporters
Wednesday, September 13, 2017

90% OF MILLENNIAL WOMEN ON OKCUPID SUPPORT PLANNED PARENTHOOD

NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- OkCupid & Planned Parenthood Federation of America announced today that the dating app is introducing a Planned Parenthood Badge that enables singles to find--and connect with--other members who support the non-profit. The badge will read "#IStandWithPP" and will be prominently displayed on the profile of every OkCupid member who has publicly responded "no" to the question "Should the government defund Planned Parenthood?"

OkCupid is famous for iconic questions that members must answer during signup. Responses to these questions, like the one on Planned Parenthood, inform OkCupid's high-tech algorithm so it can connect daters with people they'll really click with. But throughout the partnership, the Planned Parenthood Badge will make it even easier for supporters to start a conversation: not only will the badge highlight their support, but the app will promote daters with the badge to others who also have it, so they can connect over what's particularly important to them.

"OkCupid's partnership with Planned Parenthood is really exciting because it enables us to help people connect on the issues that matter to them. In this current climate, this matters more than ever when it comes to finding 'your person,'" said Melissa Hobley, CMO, OkCupid. "We know that Planned Parenthood is driving conversations, support and education that millions care about. When we looked at the data, we saw that our community on OkCupid was talking about Planned Parenthood...so we decided to make it easy to find the folks who cared about the same thing."

"Knowing your prospective date supports equal rights, access to reproductive health care and the best, evidence-based sex education is undeniably sexy, and OkCupid's new Planned Parenthood badge will let users see that immediately," said Dawn Laguens, Executive Vice President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America. "At Planned Parenthood, we are continually looking for innovative approaches to get people the information and care they need to lead healthy lives and achieve their goals - whether that's on their phones or in a health center."
