June 21, 2018, New York, NY — Hornet, the world’s premier gay social network, announced the launch of an updated chat function, providing users with a sleeker, simplified chat experience.

The Hornet chat function is a key element of the product and it’s where users spend most of their time. The latest version of the Hornet app also allows users to have much easier control over access to their private photos. On the top of each chat window, all users now have a simple lock indicator which tells them if private photos are visible to whomever they are chatting. With a single touch of the indicator button, a user can now toggle the keys to their private photos on or off.
