(IAC) (MTCH) Privacy Issues Could Kill Match Group (via OPW)

Tinder, eHarmony and Zoosk Win iDate2016 Superconference Awards ?

Do you remember also? Global Personals Ltd. owner of White Label which had been proven by Journalists to invent fake profiles from inside. Same for Cupid PLC with a new CEO named last year. After that scandal some "UK Dating Sites Found Body To Clean Up Industry"  But they should begin to delete all FAKE and INACTIVE PROFILES  from online dating sites.
The same for AshleyMadison's "Ashley’s Angels" [Fortress Investments, a New York hedge fund, will loan Avid Life Media USD50M over two years and Ashley Madison Linked To A Murder Case ]
AND
the big lawsuit against Match (nasdaq: IACI) [Evan Spencer, says that despite the fact that anti-scammer technology is available, Match fail to use such things as face-recognition software – which would have discovered that her pictures were being used hundreds of times. Yuliana Avalos has argued in a 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.  "Yuliana Avalos, is a part-time model who never joined Match, but says her pictures have been used in ~200 fake profiles."]


Imagine a NEW Legislation for Online Dating Sites to force them disclose how many active members they have (Premium members: paid or with gift subscriptions) ?
And also force them to conduct ID verification ? A variety of new laws, or new interpretations of existing laws, could subject dating sites to claims or otherwise harm their business. (extracted from IAC SEC filing)

WorldWide, there are over 5,000 -five thousand- online dating sites
but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!
but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!
but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!
but no one is scientifically proven! 
No actual online dating site  is "scientifically proven" because no one can prove its matching algorithm can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships -and very low divorce rates- than couples matched by chance, astrological destiny, personal preferences, searching on one's own, or other technique as the control group in a peer reviewed Scientific Paper for the majority (over 90%) of its members.

eDarling/EliteSingles are only copycats of eHarmony.

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.

Match Group (MTCH) Q4 2015 Earnings Preview (IAC)


http://www.nasdaq.com/article/match-group-mtch-q4-earnings-preview-what-to-expect-cm571778

IAC/InterActiveCorp (IAC) CEO Joey Levin on Q3 2015 Results - Earnings Call Transcript by Seeking Alpha
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2015/10/iacinteractivecorp-iaci-ceo-joey-levin.html

The Match Group is only a collection of old and obsolete online dating sites: Match, Meetic, Chemistry, OkCupid, FriendScout24, OurTime, HowAboutWe, PlentyOfFish and many more are past their primes, reached operating ceiling and they are in decadence.

Moreover, Tinder will not monetize as expected and it is cannibalizing Match.
Tinder 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)

http://newsok.com/article/5475437

USA FBI agents have made the first arrests in their investigation of an online dating scam that has duped victims out of millions of dollars.

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/11/bad-news-big-lawsuit-against-match.html
Last August 2011 when a U.S. Class Action Called Match a 'Scam' / More than 90% of potential dates are "phantoms," suit charged then Match had morphed its marketing campaign.


When I was interviewed last January 2011 by "Caras y Caretas" (summer in Argentina) I thought there were going to be a big scandal, because former CEO of Match LATAM Countries recognized 75% inactive profiles at Match Argentina, but nothing happened. Soon or later, all online dating sites should scan all photos used in each and every profile!

Tinder, eHarmony and Zoosk Win iDate2016 Superconference Awards ?

Lack Of Innovation & Decadence can summarize the Online Dating Industry 2015.
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.

eDarling/EliteSingles are only copycats of eHarmony.

 "online dating is a rising business"
"Affinitas GmH. wants to grow mainly in USA"
"200.000 new clients per month, 15% - 20% are from USA"
"Affinitas GmH. 2015 revenue grew 20%, up to Euros 60Million"
"target: well educated persons (professionals) from 35 to 55 years old"
"Tinder is not a competition"

PAPER User Similarity Adjustment for Improved Recommendations http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/01/paper-user-similarity-adjustment-for.html

Please remember:
Personality Based Recommender Systems are the next generation of recommender systems because they perform far better than Behavioural ones (past actions and pattern of personal preferences)
That is the only way to improve recommender systems, to include the personality traits of their users. They need to calculate personality similarity between users but there are different formulas to calculate similarity.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/01/paper-diversity-enhancement-in.html
In case you did not notice, recommender systems are morphing to compatibility matching engines, as the same used in the Online Dating Industry for years, with low success rates!!! because they mostly use the Big 5 to assess personality and the Pearson correlation coefficient to calculate similarity.
Please remember: Personality traits are highly stable in persons over 25 years old to 45 years old.

Online Dating sites OFFERING COMPATIBILITY MATCHING METHODS BASED ON PERSONALITY SIMILARITY 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 normative personality test instead.
The same applies for Personality Based Recommender Systems.


Similarity is a word that has different meanings for different persons or companies, it exactly depends on how mathematically is defined.

The next wave of innovation!

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 correlation with quantized patterns.
Without 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
