Facebook is an American for-profit corporation and an online social media and social networking service based in Menlo Park, California.The Facebook website was launched on February 4, 2004, by Mark Zuckerberg, along with fellow Harvard College students and roommates, Eduardo Saverin, Andrew Mc Collum, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes.After registering to use the site, users can create a user profile indicating their name, occupation, schools attended and so on.Users can add other users as "friends", exchange messages, post status updates and digital photos, share digital videos and links, use various software applications ("apps"), and receive notifications when others update their profiles or make posts.“I’m relieved I hadn’t met up with him or told him identifying information about myself.”As strange as her experience felt, Tweten realized after swapping stories with friends that it wasn’t that unusual: For many women, oddly aggressive, sometimes threatening interactions with men are an all-too-familiar feature of Internet dating.The misconduct comes in a range of forms: Sometimes, a conversation on OKCupid, Tinder, or another service starts off overly offensive or aggressive, or turns hostile when the woman doesn’t respond favorably or quickly enough.It is something we use in order to satisfy our impulsivity.In this case, a personal form of discrimination against Japanese people.

So when Nathan (not his real name) matched with Alexandra Tweten, a 28-year-old woman living in Los Angeles, she was eager to start chatting. “It could have been my exact profile,” says Tweten.
In his free time, he could be found digging through all the right vinyl genres: indie rock, shoegaze, electronic, and new age.
