You Look Beautiful: A New HowHookup Photo Viewing Experience

Last week our product team built a gorgeous new photo viewing experience. Check it out:

We've long had the idea that you should be able to -- very quickly -- get a high quality photo and profile viewing experience right from the homepage stream and search page. This is the first step in that direction.

Now, when you hover over any photo in the stream, a magnifying glass icon appears. When you click that icon, you get a full-page photo view. You can see all the photos from the user. And you can send him or her a quick message.

We hope that this achieves a few things:

1) Makes photo viewing more pleasant.

2) Lets you quickly learn more about users who, at first glance, you're interested in. We'll be adding a profile view into this view shortly.

3) Increases messaging rates. More conversations = more dates.

4) Motivates people to upload more and better quality photos.
