eHarmony Mapping Love with Hadoop ???
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/10/eharmony-mapping-love-with-hadoop.html


eHarmony is 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.

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/08/eh-eharmony-plus-is-forbidden-new-in.html
Moreover eHarmony was copycatted in several countries like the online dating sites EliteSingles in Canada, Australia, USA, UK; eDarling in Spain, German, France, Russia; also TeAmo in Russia is another copycat of eHarmony. eSynchrony in Singapore, MiMediaManzana in Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Chile, etc.


BIG DATA DATING is not the key to long-lasting romance.
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.

Personality Based Recommender Systems are the next generation of recommender systems because they perform far better than Behavioural ones (past actions and pattern of personal preferences) 

That is the only way to improve recommender systems, to include the personality traits of their users. They need to calculate personality similarity between users.

In case you had not noticed, recommender systems are morphing to compatibility matching engines, as the same used in the Online Dating Industry. 
Which is the RIGHT approach to innovate in the Personality Based Recommender Systems Arena?

The same approach to innovate in the Online Dating Industry == 16PF5 test or similar to assess personality traits and a new method to calculate similarity between quantized patterns.

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 3 milestone discoveries of the 2001 - 2010 decade for Theories of Romantic Relationships Development are:
I) Several studies showing contraceptive pills users make different mate choices, on average, compared to non-users. "Only short-term but not long-term partner preferences tend to vary with the menstrual cycle"
II) People often report partner preferences that are not compatible with their choices in real life. (Behavioural recommender systems or other system that learns your preferences are useless)
III) What is important in attracting people to one another may not be important in making couples happy. Compatibility is all about a high level on personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment.

 
The key to long-lasting romance; COMPATIBILITY 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.

eHarmony: Engineers try to get to the heart of true love



https://news.usc.edu/106008/love-is-in-the-algorithm-created-by-usc-engineers/

eHarmony recruits two USA USC data scientists to break down the hidden factors that result in long-lasting relationships.
Aram Galstyan and Greg Ver Steeg of the USC Information Sciences Institute are applying principles of quantum mechanics to the matchmaking algorithms that run eHarmony, one of the country’s most successful online dating sites.http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/08/eharmony-promising-light-in-usa-dark.html
“Someone who goes to an online dating service like eHarmony is saying to themselves, ‘I have to find the right person to spend my life with,”’ Ver Steeg said. “It’s really hard. There are billions of people in the world. How can I shorten the list?”



Shorten the list?
Very easy!

articles about: Florida dad killed after PlentyOfFish (POF) robbery set up

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2016/08/23/florida-man-lured-his-death-woman-he-met-online/89199194/
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/breaking-news/os-murder-robbery-online-dating-20160822-story.html

Perhaps in near future USA FTC will force each and every online dating company to conduct ID verification to avoid crimes, scammers and spammers.



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.

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/07/mtch-match-group-q2-2016.html

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.
