This is interesting and I think a good way to produce some great activism via social media. However, this particular use essentially created a witch hunt. It is ok to have a different opinions and beliefs than “you”. In addition, the suggestion that users should discontinue use of a product could potentially negatively effect that company’s revenues. Revenues that pay employees who had nothing to do with this issue. In fact, some of them are probably gay. I doubt OKCupid put any real thought into this.
This, in my opinion, is a form of McCarthyism and puts a spotlight on what is wrong with social media.
