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.

Perhaps Facebook is copycatting Tinder and Bumble, with some minor improvement with the help of former eHarmony's team,
and perhaps Facebook dating app will be free in order to erode Match Group dating sites.

PAPER that debunks EliteSingles, SilverSingles, eHarmony and copycats using Big Five normative tests!!!

 
 

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.

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/05/suggested-usa-ftc-investigate-several.html


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.

https://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2018/07/13/us/ap-us-online-dating-indictment.html

ATLANTA — Seven Nigerians are facing charges after prosecutors say they targeted people on dating websites and swindled them out of more than USD 1.5 Million.
The U.S. attorney's office in Atlanta said in a news release Friday that the Nigerians created fake online dating profiles with photos of models or public figures. Prosecutors said they targeted people with financial assets, spending weeks or months courting them.

Terrifying Tinder scam catching out countless Australians
https://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com/2018/04/terrifying-tinder-scam-catching-out.html



Please remember the case of Yuliana Avalos and Melissa Midwest former 2014 big lawsuit againts Match Group, third-party scammers in Africa or wherever were creating fake profiles and catfishing with them.
IAC and Match Group were essentially aware of that situation and did nothing to stop it.
The USA Court ruled that IAC and Match Group were not responsible.
Attorney Evan Spencer, said that despite the fact that anti-scammer technology is available, Match Group failed to use such things as face-recognition software – which would have discovered that Yuliana Avalos's pictures were being used hundreds of times.
Yuliana Avalos has argued in a former 2014 big lawsuit against Match that photos of her were posted without her permission on the site as part of a scam that drove a man to commit suicide.

Match Group Inc (NASDAQ:MTCH) Investors Are Paying Above The Intrinsic Value (article)
This results in an intrinsic value of USD 26.02

"The one" or "the perfect match" does not exist.
It will only exist a pool of compatible persons, not more than that.
They can not promise "the one" or a "perfect match".

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