Facebook's Graph Search not good for Online Dating purposes.

Business Insider has published an article about Facebook's Graph Search saying it is not good for Online Dating purposes, but "online dating" is a broad concept to define a large group of different proposals. 

Most probably Dr.  Andrew T. Fiore, Data Scientist at Facebook is one of the masterminds behind graph search. Check some of his publications to understand why he is not going to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry for serious daters, but Graph Search can kill fun dating proposals like Badoo, HowAboutWe, Zoosk, LikeIt (rebranded from TheCompleteMe), even OkCupid and PlentyOfFish (POF).
(especially the Thesis ROMANTIC REGRESSIONS An Analysis of Behavior in Online Dating Systems September 2004)

What comes after Social Networking?
My bet: The Next Big Investment Opportunity on the Internet will be …. Personalization!
Personality Based Recommender Systems and Strict Personality Based Compatibility Matching Engines for serious Online Dating with the normative 16PF5 personality test. 

Which is the RIGHT approach to innovate in the Personality Based Recommender Systems Arena?
The same 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
