Great article. I strongly agree with the author because:
* The Match Group has a big debt because they had overpaid for PlentyOfFish (It was insane, USD575 Million for PlentyOfFish that past its prime 2 years ago).
* The Match Group is only a collection of old and obsolete online dating sites: Match, Meetic, Chemistry, OkCupid, FriendScout24, OurTime, HowAboutWe and many more.
* Tinder will not monetize as expected and can collapse like Skout (problems with minors using it). Also Tinder is in war with other online dating application: Bumble backed by Badoo (powered by a Russian Mafia of hackers & spies)
* The Match Group is not going to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry in the next years.

ARTICLE What is your Tinder horror story?
The only way to revolutionize the Online Dating Industry 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 and expressing compatibility with eight decimals (needs
a quantized pattern comparison method, part of pattern recognition by
cross-correlation, to calculate similarity between prospective mates.)
High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
It is all about achieving the eighth decimal!
With 8 decimals, you have more precision than any person could achieve by searching on one's own, but the only way to achieve the eighth decimal is using analysis and correlationwith quantized patterns.
offering the NORMATIVE16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16
personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to
innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo
