article about Massive Growth In Dating Apps


published by Business Insider
http://www.businessinsider.com/search-for-love-sparks-dating-app-growth-2014-7

Lack Of Innovation & Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry for years.
The Online Dating Industry is performing like the Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Industry before the USA Food and Drug Administration was created. There is no/weak Legislation, no ID verification, low reliable background checks, no Quality Norms.
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 needs Innovations, but the innovations the Online Dating Industry needs will come from only one source: the latest discoveries in theories of romantic relationships development with commitment.
Do you want to innovate in the Online Dating Industry?

NEW paper: "Recommender System"

http://ijcsmc.com/docs/papers/July2014/V3I7KJ10.pdf
Abstract-  One of the major data mining applications is Recommender System. It is the intelligent system that basically investigate the dataset present in existing system and based on which it will give some suggestions to the user  regarding  further  process.  These  recommender  systems  are  generally  application  specific  and  work  on certain parameters. In this present work we define a hybrid recommender system for the movies ranking. A movie based recommender system suggests the user about the movie that he should rank after performing the intelligent analysis. In this present work, we are defining three dimensions to get the concept of hybridization. This kind of dataset  having two main  dimensions  called  users,  movies  and  the  relationship. The  first level  analysis  will  be based on user side where the content based weighted similarity analysis will be performed. Once the similar users will be identified, the next work is performed on movie side. The similar movies based on different aspects are identified  using  content  based  weighted  analysis.  At  the  third  level,  the  similarity  analysis  between  the relationships  is  identified  using  collaborative  analysis.  To  perform  the  collaborative  analysis,  correlation coefficient  will  be  used.  Once  these  three  level  analysis  will  be  completed,  the  next  work  is  to conclude  the relationship using weighted approach. The weightage will be applied all three methods and obtain the analysis.
Another improvement  here defined  is the analysis  under the temporal  vector.  It  means,  instead of  analysis  on whole dataset, the dataset in same time domain will be considered only. The work will be implemented in Matlab environment.

Messaging Secrets From eHarmony And OKCupid Databanks ?

Big data dating IS NOT the key to long-lasting romance 
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/03/big-data-dating-is-not-key-to-long.html
The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY.


Unfortunately eHarmony, is a 14 years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/05/ibisworld-analyst-eharmony-is-forecast.html
The Big Five normative test that had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
The Big Five normative test had been replaced by HEXACO or Big Six test.

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 to kill the Matchmaking Industry, like computers killed typewriters.
Worldwide there are less than 7 million paid members (adding up all the ones at eHarmony/EliteSingles/eDarling, Match, Chemistry, Meetic, MeeticAffinity, OkCupid, PeopleMedia’s Communities, PlentyOfFish, Parship/eCift, and others).

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!

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.
It is all about achieving the eighth decimal!
With 8 decimals, you have more precision than any person could achieve by searching on one's own, but the only way to achieve the eighth decimal is using analysis and correlation with quantized patterns.

Without offering the NORMATIVE16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo.

Rocket's in Iran (Die iranischen Rocket-Ventures, mit denen Rocket nichts zu tun hat )

a big pandemic of Brillant, Jade and Juwel companies
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/04/a-big-pandemic-of-brillant-jade-and.html
They are full (in excess) of phantom companies, shell companies.
And not only they have lots of phantom companies, shell companies. There is a very complicated and intriguing interlace of them. (very suspicious situation)
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/04/rocket-internet-clone-empire-most.html

------------------------------------------------


"If your looking for Rocket's in Iran, you'll need to go straight to MEIH (Middle East Internet Holding), but that's in Luxembuorg. Knock on the door of Stenbeck Castle (7 Avenue JP Pescatore). There you will find Christian Senitz the International CFO for Rocket Internet. He will introduce you to young Ramtin. He'll take you straight to Tehran where you will meet Romak (Ideh Novin Tejarat Romak). There you will find the Rocket cache - Bamilo, Mozando, Bolofood, and now another Taxi Yaab.
It's the next big thing."

More about DNA matching Instant Chemistry and SingldOut partnership

Dave Evans have recently blogged about
"SingldOut Offers Genetic Matchmaking"


http://onlinedatingpost.com/archives/2014/07/singldout-offers-genetic-matchmaking/
The proposal is a HOAX, a big FRAUD in the Online Dating Industry.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2014/07/15/dna-online-dating-instant-chemistry/12633415/


See my reviews of: Basisnote (2009), GenePartner (2008), ScientificMatch (2011)
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2011/09/basisnote-genepartner-scientificmatch.html
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2013/09/about-instant-chemistry-canadian-based.html


Instant Chemistry is mainly / only based on the T_shirt Experiment that only proved:
normally cycling women (not pregnant and not taking contraceptive pills) are (temporarily) attracted by the perspiration scent of clothes used by men with a Major Histocompatibility Complex MHC more dissimilar to theirs,

and not proved: women attracted by those men for long term mating with commitment.
and
2 Scientific Papers debunk their claims.
1) "Human oestrus" Gangestad & Thornhill (2008)
"Only short-term but not long-term partner preferences tend to vary with the menstrual cycle"

2) "Does the contraceptive pill alter mate choice in humans?" Alvergne & Lummaa (2009)
".. whereas normally cycling women express a preference for MHC (Major Histocompatibility Complex) dissimilarity in mates, pill users prefer odours of MHC-SIMILAR men, indicating that pill use might eliminate adaptive preferences for genetic dissimilarity."
................
"...., Roberts et al. attempted to eliminate these potential confounds by adopting a within-subject design in which women's mate preferences were assessed before and after they began taking the pill. Women starting the pill showed a significant preference shift towards MHC SIMILARITY compared with three months before the pill was taken, a shift that was not observed in the control group of normally cycling women."

Dafiti lost Euros 72.9 Million during 2013 in Latam countries!




Logistics costs and distances in Argentina make it difficult to offer free shipping in cheap products.
http://www.lanacion.com.ar/1707422-envio-sin-costo-un-beneficio-escaso-en-el-ecommerce-local
In Internet shopping, some products are coming into Argentina from another continent at no cost
(perhaps from Alibaba).
Why free shipping is not common in Argentina ? It constitutes a barrier to the development of eCommerce locally.
For instance, Dafiti in Argentina sends free shipping if you buy over ARS299 pesos (in the range USD28-USD32), less than the average sale ticket of the site. 
(Dafiti losses money sending a free shipping delivery in Argentina because it fixed a low level, perhaps to gain traction. PREDATORY PRICES)


Please remember:
If you want to replicate a big success in Brazil, it will be as hard as the same to replicate it in all European countries, but in this case with 1/8 of population and the majority of the persons DO NOT own or WILL NOT use a credit/debit card to buy online! They will prefer to research online and then buy offline.

Many if not most, USA, Canada or European businesses models are inviable in Latin American countries!

Perhaps the same situation for Africa, Russia or even Australia.
(transportation costs could be 10 times bigger than Europe

e.g. If you buy a pair of shoes from Dafiti, it seems Dafiti is selling below cost to gain traction, so Dafiti is going to lose money selling that pair of shoes, and if Dafiti delivers that pair of shoes to your house for free, the fee of the courier in Argentina or Brazil could be 10 times the fee of the same courier in Germany or Sweden.)
 
All European countries fit in Brazil or Australia,

Big investments, big losses
http://venturevillage.eu/kinnevik-rocket-internet-investments
As for the young Latin American Amazon clone, Linio, 2017 is set to be a good year – with estimated revenues of €281m, the Samwers claim that the return on sales will be an impressive 12%. This is a clear sign of the Samwers’ huge and rather unrealistic ambitions: by comparison, the company’s US original, Amazon, makes just  1.1% in returns.
http://venturevillage.eu/rocket-internet-wants-to-take-down-ikea
I suspect no one of the cloned companies by Samwer Bros. are really profitable or sustainable for the next 5 years, to until 2019 at least; and as they will not be able to sell to the original company they had copycatted, as they failed to sell Affinitas GmbH. to eHarmony Inc. last March 2012 and as the Management Team can not innovate in nothing because they are not entrepreneurs, they will collapse. All cloned companies seem like bubbles.http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/04/rocket-internets-samwer-brothers-ab.html
