PAPER: Dyadic Relationship Values in Chinese Online Daters: Love American Style?


http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs12119-014-9255-0

Abstract

Documented differences exist between Eastern and Western attitudes and beliefs about romantic relationships, but some authorities argue that dyadic relationship values are becoming increasingly Westernized. Accordingly, we surveyed current beliefs structures in a large sample (n = 11,300) of male and female subscribers to a major matchmaking site in China, drawing on Sternberg’s classic Triangular Theory of Love (passion, intimacy, and commitment). Consistent with previous findings, dyadic relationship values conformed to a unidimensional Rasch model, although the relative importance of these values varied by age and sex. As predicted, themes related to the component of commitment, and to some extent intimacy, were consistently rated as more salient than themes associated with passion. Unexpectedly, values reflecting passion tended to be rated as more salient than themes related to family/status. Men across all age brackets rated passion and ambition as more salient than the women did, whereas both sexes agreed on the relative importance of financial security. Over all, the results substantiated specific cultural differences reported in the literature but also revealed trends suggesting that contemporary Chinese society is moving closer to love “American style.” 


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.
Similarity is a word that has different meanings for different persons or companies, it exactly depends on how mathematically is defined. I calculate similarity in personality patterns with (a proprietary) pattern recognition by correlation method. It takes into account the score and the trend to score of any pattern.  Also it takes into account women under hormonal treatment because several studies showed 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"

Please see: "How to calculate personality similarity between users"
Short answer: the key is the ENSEMBLE!
(the whole set of different valid possibilities)
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2013/03/how-to-calculate-personality-similarity.html

Worldwide there are over 5,000 online dating sites, no one uses the 16PF5, no one is scientifically proven yet, and no one can show you compatibility distribution curves, i.e. if you are a man seeking women, to show how compatible you are with a 20,000,000 women database, and to select a bunch of 100 women from 20,000,000 women database.

eHarmony Mapping Love with Hadoop ???

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.
eHarmony, is a 14+ years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/06/iaci-and-eharmony-usa-sites-big-tv.html

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/05/ibisworld-analyst-eharmony-is-forecast.html
eHarmony is a 14+ years old obsolete site using Big Five traits to measure personality of its members, but 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.
Online Dating sites OFFERING COMPATIBILITY MATCHING METHODS BASED ON PERSONALITY SIMILARITY have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the Big Five model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead.
The same applies for Personality Based Recommender Systems.

eHarmony's algorithm is in the range of showing you 3 most compatible persons per 1,000 persons screened, and with the 16PF5 you can reach 3 most compatible persons per 100,000 persons screened; a 100 times more powerful algorithm (NOT 100% improvement, a 100 X improvement, really an innovation)

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!

comScore report: Argentina Digital Future in Focus (2014)





http://www.comscore.com/Insights/Presentations-and-Whitepapers/2014/2014-Argentina-Digital-Future-in-Focus

The "2014 Digital Future in Focus Argentina" analyzes online audience trends by category and demography and provides a preview of the innovations to come in Argentina in 2015. 

Here are some of the highlights:
- In the last year, the online audience in Latin America grew 12% reaching 179 million unique visitors.
- Argentina is the third largest online audience in Latin America after Brazil and Mexico with 18.6 million unique users.
- Social Media is the category with more minutes on PC/Laptops screens for Argentineans.
- Argentina has the second highest reach for Social Media sites worldwide.
- Argentina has the highest reach for Sports sites in the region. On average, 1.5 million Argentineans visit Sport sites every day.
- There is a migration to mobile consumption: the usage of non-PC devices in Argentina is at 13.1%.  The dominant operating system is Android.
- Clicks are at best an incomplete – and at worst a misleading – metric.
- Reach and Frequency are beginning to be considered the most relevant metric to measure impact.

I have the theory that if something is successful in Argentina, it could be a success in the World.
If it can NOT be a success here in Argentina, it will definitely NOT be a success in the World.

NO online dating company (for serious daters) has success here in Argentina nor Brazil or other Latin American country.

article about a U.S. A New Federal Trade Secret Law.

http://blog.ericgoldman.org/archives/2014/10/congress-is-considering-a-new-federal-trade-secret-law-why-forbes-cross-post.htm
http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2498323

Trade secrets usually don’t grab headlines the way that patents or copyrights do, but don’t let that fool you about their importance. Studies regularly show that most businesses care more about trade secrets than either copyrights or patents. In fact, trade secrets are implicated by every aspect of a company’s operations, including dealings with employees, vendors and customers. And while there are millions of issued patents and registered copyrights, the total number of protectable trade secrets is nearly infinite.

(It is said they paid USD 30 million for the 30% stake of eHarmony)
http://venturevillage.eu/samwer-brothers-edarling-talk-of-failed-exit-completely-wrong
Perhaps without those USD 30 million eHarmony would have closed forever.

MILESTONES:
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/08/today-eharmonys-14th-birthday.html
eHarmony's CA, UK and AU sites never performed as expected.
eHarmony failed in Japan.
eHarmony failed its IPO last 2011, 2010, er ... even 2008?
eHarmony closed its site in Brazil.
eHarmony failed with Jazzed.
eHarmony refused to acquire the whole of Affinitas GmbH. (eDarling and others) and went free/freemium in USA & CA.
eHarmony was copycatted several times like TeAmoRu and eSynchrony
Last June 2013 eHarmony published a paper "A Third of Recently Married Couples Met Online" but ... Better Business Bureau Tells eHarmony To Nix Best-Marriage Boasts
eHarmony closed eHarmonyLabs.
eHarmony launched matchmaking service eH+ for USD5,000
eHarmony plans to launch Elevated Careers next December 2014.

Please remember:
eHarmony, is a 14 years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.

I had reviewed over 55 compatibility matching engines intended for serious dating since 2003, when I had discovered "the online dating sound barrier" problem.


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"

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".


Breaking "the online dating sound barrier" is to achieve at least:
3 most compatible persons in a 100,000 persons database.
12 most compatible persons in a 1,000,000 persons database.
48 most compatible persons in a 10,000,000 persons database.
100 times better than Compatibility Matching Algorithms used by actual online dating sites!

The only way to achieve that 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. The ensemble of the 16PF5 is: 10E16, big number as All World Population is nearly 7.0 * 10E9 (estimated OCT 2013)
- expressing compatibility with eight decimals, like The pattern 6.7.6.8.9.6.7.7.8.7.2.5.8.7.3.4 is 92.55033557%  +/- 0.00000001% similar to the pattern 7.7.6.8.8.7.6.5.8.7.4.5.7.7.3.4
Using a quantized pattern comparison method (part of pattern recognition by cross-correlation) to calculate similarity between prospective mates.
