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.

about 7 Nigerians Charged in Alleged Dating Site Scheme



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.

Social dating is vaporware. The Online Dating Industry needs innovations!

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.  

Breaking "the online dating sound barrier" is to achieve at least:
3 most compatible persons in a 100,000 persons database.
12 most compatible persons in a 1,000,000 persons database.
48 most compatible persons in a 10,000,000 persons database.
100 times better than Compatibility Matching Algorithms used by actual online dating sites!

High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/01/mistakes-at-behavioral-economics-of.html

The 3 milestone discoveries of the 2001 - 2010 decade for Theories of Romantic Relationships Development are:

I) Several studies showing contraceptive pills users make different mate choices, on average, compared to non-users.
"Only short-term but not long-term partner preferences tend to vary with the menstrual cycle"

II) People often report partner preferences that are not compatible with their choices in real life. (Behavioural recommender systems or other system that learns your preferences are useless)

III) What is important in attracting people to one another may not be important in making couples happy.
Compatibility is all about a high level on personality similarity between prospective mates for long term mating with commitment, and not meet other people with similar interests or political views.
At the paper  "Perceptions of Ideal and Former Partners' Personality and Similarity
The authors had written
".... mismatches in personality are a frequently mentioned cause for relationship break-up. If former partners indeed have dissimilar personalities, our findings underline how difficult it is for many people to select a mate with a similar personality, or, alternatively, how little value individuals put on finding a similar partner in terms of personality.
The present study's results, as well as the results found in previous studies (e.g., Eastwick & Finkel, 2008), may be used to educate people, especially singles, about what really matters in long-term relationships, for instance, similarity in personality, instead of complementarity."

eHarmony selects Redis Enterprise for unmatched real-time performance

"eHarmony uses complex machine learning algorithms to anticipate the compatibility of pairs of users. "
The success rate of eHarmony is less than 10%.
eHarmony is ONLY a 17+  years old obsolete site, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.
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)
