Lack Of Innovation & Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry.
C-Level executives are more worried about their golf scores than their company’s long term strategy and innovations.
C-level executives are cooking barbecues under the water (selling smoke) and not paying attention to latest research from Academics which could be beneficial for the Online Dating Industry.
Wasting precious time with Matchmakers which should be obsolete.


The Online Dating Industry needs Innovations.

Innovations are not adding more bells and whistles to actual online dating sites.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/04/nearly-1000-online-dating-startups-at.html

The innovations the Online Dating Industry needs will come from only one source: the latest discoveries in theories of romantic relationships development with commitment.

Only 3 major discoveries can help to revolutionize the online dating industry.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2013/12/the-8-tips-to-innovate-in-online-dating.html



The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 -five thousand- online dating sites
but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!
but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!
but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!
but no one is scientifically proven!  No actual online dating site  is "scientifically proven" because no one can prove its matching algorithm can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships -and very low divorce rates- than couples matched by chance, astrological destiny, personal preferences, searching on one's own, or other technique as the control group in a peer reviewed Scientific Paper for the majority (over 90%) of its members.
but no one can show you a list of compatible persons like this:
( for a prospective male customer / sample but calculated with real values)
“Over 1,000,000 million women database, here is the list of the 12 more compatible with you. Notice that woman#1 is the most compatible with you but she could be more compatible with other men right now.
woman#01 is 95.58476277% compatible
woman#02 is 95.56224356% compatible
woman#03 is 95.52998273% compatible
woman#04 is 94.18354278% compatible
woman#05 is 93.00453871% compatible
woman#06 is 93.00007524% compatible
woman#07 is 92.99738452% compatible
woman#08 is 92.37945551% compatible
woman#09 is 92.29779173% compatible
woman#10 is 92.27114287% compatible
woman#11 is 92.19515551% compatible
woman#12 is 92.12249558% compatible”


The only way to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry is using the 16PF5 normative personality test, available in different languages to assess personality of members, or a proprietary test with exactly the same traits of the 16PF5 and expressing compatibility with eight decimals (needs a quantized pattern comparison method, part of pattern recognition by cross-correlation, to calculate similarity between prospective mates.)

High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry


The Online Dating Industry does not need a 10% improvement, a 50% improvement or a 100% improvement. It does need "a 100 times better improvement"


 All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo.

article: Wall Street swipes left for Tinder (Match Group)

http://nypost.com/2016/07/27/wall-street-swipes-left-for-tinder/

“The percentage of people using Tinder that will actually become paying subscribers is a lot lower than many people think,” says Brandon Ross, an analyst at BTIG who predicted the disappointing subscriber numbers in a note to clients earlier this week.


Why Tinder is making women MISERABLE: Men swipe right for an ego boost with no intention of speaking to matches

Be alerted USA FTC goes for Match Group, perhaps no more automatic rebilling clause soon!

The Match Group is not going to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry in the next years.

"There are other big problems with MTCH stock. It is loaded with debt — almost USD1.2 billion of it. It is trying to refinance some of that debt with a USD400 million bond offering, but the rate is effectively in junk territory — 6.375%. It has USD1.3 billion of goodwill on its balance sheet from all of its acquisitions, almost a third of its market cap."



The Match Group overpaid for PlentyOfFish (It was insane, USD575 Million for PlentyOfFish that past its prime 2 years ago). The Match Group had been doing all wrong, acquiring rotten companies to show illusory success to its investors.


Suggested USA FTC investigate several online dating sites for misleading statements, false claims, overpromises.  http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/05/suggested-usa-ftc-investigate-several.html 


Social dating is vaporware.
Online Dating for serious daters does not need to be more social, it needs to be more effective/efficient.  It needs to reduce the false positives problem and big data dating IS NOT the key to long-lasting romance.


The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".

The Online Dating Industry does not need a 10% improvement, a 50% improvement or a 100% improvement. It does need "a 100 times better improvement"

eH+, eHarmony Plus, freezed?

Please see screenshots!



eH+ launched during 2013
eHarmony Admits They Suck, Offers Personal Matchmaking Service For USD5K Instead

eHarmony has launched its new matchmaking service eH+ which is a combination of online dating with an experienced matchmaker who will work personally with the clients. eH+ is priced at USD5K a year.

THAT IS THE SAME TO SAY a computer also uses a typewriter to innovate!
The Online Dating Industry needs to kill the Matchmaking Industry, like computers killed typewriters.

Mission accomplished. eHarmony ship will sink soon!
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/07/mission-accomplished-eharmony-ship-will.html



Next August 2016, eHarmony will be a 16  years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.
The Big Five normative test used by eHarmony, had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.

Why Tinder is making women MISERABLE: Men swipe right for an ego boost with no intention of speaking to matches


 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3710505/What-Tinder-strategy-Men-likely-casually-swipe-right-women-match-attract-them.html

Researchers set up 14 Tinder profiles to study how men and women use it
The profiles received 8,248 male matches and only 532 female matches
7 per cent of men and 21 per cent of women sent a message after matching
Women took more time over writing a message compared to men

"The Match team is working on artificial intelligence and its matching algorithms."???
Synapse: the Match algorithm?
It is really funny how those "important persons / math geniuses" from big Online Dating Sites can waste precious time with Behavioural Recommender Systems, improving them, "refining" those Behavioural Matching Algorithms, which are all rubbish.
