- Many if not most, USA, Canada or European businesses models are unfeasible in Russia, Africa, or in Latin American countries!
(transportation costs could be 10 times bigger than Europe)

USA (in California) to Stop Trying To Ban Consumer Reviews

California Tells Businesses: Stop Trying To Ban Consumer Reviews.


"Increasingly, businesses are looking for ways to suppress or erase consumers’ negative online reviews of them. In particular, we’ve recently seen a proliferation of contract clauses purporting to stop consumers from reviewing businesses online. Those overreaching contract clauses have never been a good idea, but last week, the idea got worse. Gov. Jerry Brown signed AB 2365 into law, to be codified as California Civil Code Sec. 1670.8. The law is a first-in-the-nation statute to stop businesses from contractually gagging their consumers."

About article "Dating Algorithms Is A Virgin Science"

http://www.onlinepersonalswatch.com/news/2014/09/dating-algorithms-is-a-virgin-science.html

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.
No one compatibility matching method is Scientifically Proven.
The entire Online Dating Industry for serious daters in 1st World Countries is a HOAX, performing as a Big Online Casino, with a low effectiveness/efficiency level of their matching algorithms (less than 10%). In the same range as searching by your own.
The Online Dating Industry needs a major cataclysm to extinguish the big, old and obsolete dinosaurs.

The Online Dating Industry needs a very powerful algorithm like the "Teller Ulam design". In this case 100 times more powerful than actual matching algorithms.

With less than USD10 Million you can copycat eHarmony 
or
 innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry, killing those old & obsolete sites forever. 

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

26 tips from iDate 2014 Cologne (Germany)

http://www.onlinepersonalswatch.com/news/2014/09/some-notes-from-the-39th-internet-dating-conference-in-cologne.html

Please compare to last year 2013
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2013/09/top-86-tips-from-idate-2013-cologne-koln.html

Year over year regurgitating the same statistics, talking the same rubbish. They DO NOT want to INNOVATE!
http://www.onlinepersonalswatch.com/news/2014/06/idate-mark-brooks-mobile-dating-presentation.html

C-Level executives are more worried about their golf scores than their company’s long term strategy and innovations.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2013/01/from-idate2004-to-idate2013-final.html
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).



The biggest scammers are not from Ghana or Nigeria. They are precisely marketing executives from big sites. They use credit card billing trickery.
Lack Of Innovation & Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry for years.

Twitter looks to raise up to USD1.5Billion in debt?

http://vator.tv/news/2014-09-11-twitter-looks-to-raise-up-to-15b-in-debt

Astonished!!!

For me, Twitter, it is only a "smoke bubble""A social network / instant messaging blog based solely on a 140 characters lenght messages, for me, is now ending 2013, really obsolete, because you can read Google Plus and Facebook posts on real time using mobile devices like smartphones and tablets." I said last year.

Tinder Lawsuit GAME OVER
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/09/tinder-lawsuit-game-over.html

It seems Tinder is like Chatroulette but it will collapse like Skout.
Lots of persons want to use it, but nobody wants to pay for it.

"How Tinder will collapse"

Facebook allows minors to use it (people from 13 to 17 years old)
Online Dating is NOT for minors.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/08/how-tinder-will-collapse.html
The IAC is not going to conduct Identity Verification to screen all Tinder's members.
It seems Tinder is like Chatroulette but it will collapse like Skout.
http://mashable.com/2012/06/13/skout-rape/
When the IAC Personals bought OKCupid (3+ years ago) for an astronomical amount of money, the OKCupid team had the task to copycat Badoo, but they failed in that mission. IAC Personals backed Tinder instead, as the copycat of Badoo. Tinder is only a cheap marketing tool to send prospective clients to Match and make them paid there, but it seems there is a divorce between Tinder and Match just now! Perhaps the IAC will "discretely bury" Tinder soon, it will absorb it and merge with Match mobile (with Stream and Mixer features) as soon as possible.
