If The Future Of Dating "Hinge" On Facebook

“Top 45 Top Scientific Papers For The Online Dating Industry”

Please remember: Personality traits are highly stable in persons over 25 years old to 45 years old. 

The key to long-lasting romance: COMPATIBILITY is exactly STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests or political views". 

Which is the RIGHT 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.
Online Dating sites 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 and another method to calculate similarity.

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 needs INNOVATIONS, not more bells and whistles.

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, and not meet other people with similar interests or political views.
At the paper  "Perceptions of Ideal and Former Partners' Personality and Similarity
The authors had written
".... mismatches in personality are a frequently mentioned cause for relationship break-up. If former partners indeed have dissimilar personalities, our findings underline how difficult it is for many people to select a mate with a similar personality, or, alternatively, how little value individuals put on finding a similar partner in terms of personality.
The present study's results, as well as the results found in previous studies (e.g., Eastwick & Finkel, 2008), may be used to educate people, especially singles, about what really matters in long-term relationships, for instance, similarity in personality, instead of complementarity."

AI to this point has generally only been used by dating companies to identify how desirable users are in an attempt to provide better matches, with even the biggest dating apps in the world hitting a wall when it comes to predicting compatibility of matches.

Nothing new or innovative. That feature, new "cherry picked matches every 24 hours", is offered by several online dating sites, like eHarmony and EliteSingles /SilverSingles since years.

eHarmony selects Redis Enterprise for unmatched real-time performance



http://www.intelligentcio.com/eu/2018/06/21/eharmony-selects-redis-enterprise-for-unmatched-real-time-performance/
"eHarmony uses complex machine learning algorithms to anticipate the compatibility of pairs of users. "
The success rate of eHarmony is less than 10%.
eHarmony is ONLY a 17+  years old obsolete site, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.
The Five Factor Model aka Big Five normative test used by eHarmony and its copycats, had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
Now it is a hoax, a fraud to use it (year 2018) 

eHarmony is investing in machine learning to make smarter matches???

Match Group acquires 51% stake in NYC-based dating app Hinge



https://seekingalpha.com/news/3365357-match-group-acquires-stake-nyc-based-dating-app
"Additional terms not disclosed.  "
Same as when Match Group "acquired" HowAboutWe 4 long years ago.
(It was given nearly as free and slowly extinguished)

http://www.businessinsider.com/howaboutwe-iac-acquisition-2014-6
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2014/07/iac-bought-in-part-online-dating.html
It is not a case like OKCupid or PlentyOfFish acquisition.

Hinge: A two old months interview where the CEO explains 
he can not beat Tinder and will waste over USD 20 Million ?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/04/hinge-two-old-months-interview-where.html  



Perhaps this acquisition is related to: Online dating giant Match Group hit with NEW patent infringement lawsuit
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2018/05/online-dating-giant-match-group-hit.html





Match Group CEO will be GAME OVER soon? as per this interview
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2018/06/match-group-ceo-will-be-game-over-soon.html

 
The Match Group overpaid for PlentyOfFish last July 2015 (It was insane, USD 575 Million for PlentyOfFish that past its prime 4 years ago).
The Match Group had been doing all wrong, acquiring rotten companies to show illusory success to its investors.

The Five Factor Model aka Big Five normative test used by eHarmony and its copycats, had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
Now it is a HOAX, a FRAUD to use it (year 2018) 
The same for eDarling and EliteSingles/SilverSingles sites!



eHarmony was copycatted in several countries like
the online dating sites EliteSingles in Canada, Australia, USA, UK, Chile, Mexico; eDarling in Spain, German, France, Russia;
also TeAmo in Russia is another copycat of eHarmony;
esync (eSynchrony) in Singapore,
MiMediaManzana in Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Chile, etc.,
Marrily in India
and
LemonSwan in Germany and other countries.

Last May 2016, I 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.

Compatibility is all about a high level on personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment, and not meet other people with similar interests or political views.

Lack Of Innovation and Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry.
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.
