Philadelphia schools added to college dating website

    Facebook might be great for stalking and befriending your classmates, but an online dating service thinks it’s found a way for college students to connect on a more romantic front.

    Geekadelphia reports is now open to Philadelphia universities after a beta period that was only accessible to Columbia and NYU students. How does it work? Students can find matches based on their schools and majors, and open themselves to only the kind of matches they prefer.

    And just like the early Facebook, you need a .edu email address to connect.

    Feed the Feed: Do you think custom match-making sites help or hinder the dating process?
