Photos from the 43rd International Internet Dating Conference
It took place on January 25 - 27, 2016 in Miami. The 13th Annual iDate2016 in Miami was the largest collection of dating industry executives and professionals at one time each year. It was the most successful event for the industry. Hundreds of online dating industry professionals, matchmakers, mobile developers, software providers, marketing / advertising firms, venture capitalists, affiliate managers, payment processors, background search companies and affiliates were in attendance.
Same as From iDate2004 to iDate2013 / FINAL CONCLUSIONS
Year over year regurgitating the same statistics, talking the same rubbish.
Year over year the same scratched disk,
They DO NOT want to INNOVATE!
Lack Of Innovation & 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.
Wasting precious time with Matchmakers which should be obsolete.
eHarmony, is a 15+++ years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget. 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The Big Five normative test had been replaced by HEXACO or Big Six test.
I had reviewed over 55 compatibility matching engines intended for serious dating since 2003, when I had discovered "the online dating sound barrier" problem.
The Online Dating Industry does not need a 10% improvement, a 50% improvement or a 100% improvement. It does need "a 100 times better improvement"
The Online Dating Industry needs a very powerful algorithm like the "Teller Ulam design". In this case 100 times more powerful than actual matching algorithms.
With less than USD10 Million you can copycat eHarmony
innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry, killing those old & obsolete sites forever.
