Ashley Madison site hacked!

The hacking of the dating site Ashley Madison has raised complex questions about online privacy and the safety of personal data, but for the users of the site, which claims to have more than 33 million members in 46 countries, the questions are fairly straightforward: what are the chances my husband or wife will find my profile on the site, and what can I do to stop that happening?

New IM chat on

The world-famous kinky dating site announced a completely revamped Instant Messenger system. Click on the IM button in the right corner of your toolbar and check out the new look – and more importantly, all the new options.

When you open up an IM window, you’ll get a clean, easy-to-read list of everyone who’s online and available to chat. You have the option to filter the list by who and what you’re looking for, or to sort the list by distance or age as well as by who’s broadcasting on cam right now.

If you’re not ready for a real-time one-on-one interaction with someone, you can always send them a message – or, just add them to your Hotlist and find them later, when you’re not feeling so shy.

On the other hand, if you’re bold and motivated today (and have a webcam handy), you can start broadcasting your own cam show right from the IM window. Just tap the Start Broadcasting Now button to put on a show.

Other improvements include:
– The ability to send a flirt and send a friend request right from the IM chat window
– The photos you send to others can now be larger
– The decline and reply options for incoming IM requests are easier to locate and use dating cover
