Facebook hookups? There’s an app for that: Bang With Friends

17 Jul 2013 | By Tim Mworia

She liked my status update…she wants the D! I don’t know what the reverse gender version of that statement is (thinking of it, I don’t even want to know) but we’ve all juggled with the happy thought of “By God, if I could convert that Facebook Like into a hookup.” And oh yes, there’s an app for that!

Bang With Friends is a mobile application that simply exists to help people sleep with their Facebook friends. If you’re married or a poor bloke like me whose friend list is half family, be smart and keep off this app. According to the creators, this app is the anonymous, simple, fun way to find friends who are down for the night.

So how does this work? Well after getting the app and signing in with Facebook, the page gives you a Pinterest-like slideshow of all your friends- of the opposite sex. Below every image is a tab that reads “Down to Bang”, and that’s what you click on if you like what you see. They will only show your friend that you’re interested if they are too. So until that person you’re “Down to Bang” is also down with you, no communication is made. Once you are both down, they will send you both an email – when and where is up to you.

The app claims to have more than one million users and 200,000 matches. However, questions of privacy and morality have naturally dogged this app since it launched in January 2013. The iOS version has already been banned from the Apple Store but the Android version remains.

There have also been concerns of just how secure the app is, with claims that your Facebook friends can tell if you’re using BWF. The creators counter this by saying that the user’s default setting has now been changed to “Only Me” instead of “Public” or “Friends” after Facebook’s Graph Search functionality opened up to a wider audience.

So, are you down to Bang?
