There is a large dotcom bubble fueled by venture investment funds, investors who are dragging other investors to continue investing until they can sell shares of the company and recover leveraged money, but the last holder of shares is going to lose.
Many technology companies, without having a concrete business model (supposedly will generate revenue from advertising and premium subscription accounts) receive millions of dollars in funding to offer something free, acquiring fastly a large mass of captive users as if they had made them addicts, and then, the exit strategy (for investors) is to get someone to buy the company at a staggering figure, as did Blogger, Fotolog, MySpace, YouTube, Skype, Bebo and others. They are like continually inflating balloons and they need to find a buyer before they explode. If they can not find a private buyer for the entire company, the investors had the strategy of going public, to start trading its shares on the New York Stock Exchange, they turn those pieces of paper (shares) in real money, they get thousands of buyers purchasing lower small parts (shares).

Suggested USA FTC investigate Instant Chemistry Inc. and Gemetrics for SCIENTIFIC FRAUD, misleading statements, false claims, overpromises.

about DNA matching Instant Chemistry and SingldOut partnership
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/07/about-dna-matching-instant-chemistry.html

Genetic Matchmaking is mainly  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."

Please remember personality = temperament + character
Personality is composed of two basic types of traits:
traits that an individual acquires, dimensions of character;
and
traits with biological underpinnings, dimensions of temperament (Cloninger 1987)

Suggested USA FTC investigate ElevatedCareers by eHarmony for misleading statements, false claims, overpromises.






ElevatedCareers by eHarmony / It is a HOAX, a FRAUD, it only overpromises.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/03/elevatedcareers-by-eharmony-will-fail.html 

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/02/elevatedcareers-by-eharmony-part-1-of-3.html
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/02/elevatedcareers-by-eharmony-part-2-of-3.html
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/02/elevatedcareers-by-eharmony-part-3-of-3.html

ElevatedCareers by eHarmony delivers job matches as a machine gun shooting flowers (good for nothing, useless).

Who independently validated and independently certified the "personality test" used at ElevatedCareers?
It is home grown! It is not peer reviewed or published in any Scientific Paper.

Or is it based on the normative Big Five?
Please remember normative tests can not be simply translated, because you need the norm for those tests, and that norm is actualized each and every time Census Figures are released. 
The Big Five normative test 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.

Match Group Inc (NASDAQ:MTCH) overpaid USD575 Million in cash for it, past its prime and in decadence!
http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/www.pof.com



The Match Group is only a collection of old and obsolete online dating sites: Match, Meetic, Chemistry, OkCupid, FriendScout24, OurTime, HowAboutWe, PlentyOfFish and many more and all of them are past their primes, reached operating ceiling and they are in decadence. 
The Match Group is not going to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry in the next years.

Suggested USA FTC investigate several online dating sites for misleading statements, false claims, overpromises.

Like Match, eHarmony, Zoosk, OkCupid, EliteSingles (Affinitas GmbH.) copycat of eHarmony, Tinder and others. 













Even some of them could be creating fake profiles from inside, like AshleyMadison to entice prospective customers to subscribe.

The Online Dating Industry is selling elixirs, tonics, snake oil liniments and other patent medicine and performing like the Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Industry before the USA Food and Drug Administration was created where any player can make any claim without any credentials.
I live in a South American country and I am really astonished to see how online daters in "1st World" countries are really victims of human experimentation. 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.
