What’s worse is that Meow Chat has ‘gamified’ attention on the app, offering users a Meow Chat score that doles out points when their pictures get ‘favourited’ or when they invite all their Facebook friends to install Meow Chat.This last mechanism is probably why the app has gotten so popular so suddenly, with users spamming each other to earn ‘Meow Points’.But I really do think a lot of it is based on comfort level of perceived anonymity. I do not want to start off by blaming the Internet and saying, you know, "This medium is the reason that there are higher transmission rates." It is yet another way that men can meet men and a lot of the people who are meeting men on the Internet are also meeting men in bars and clubs and bath houses and parks and everywhere else. Adding to that, though, the Internet allows men to meet each other faster.You get on line, you want to get laid, you can have somebody at your house within an hour -- probably less in San Francisco!
