TechCrunch article: Facebook should actually be Tinder too

Facebook wants to copycat WATSON IBM, a Personality Based Recommender System.

about Chief Scientist At eHarmony Cavorts With The ... Facebook
My bet: He is copycatting WATSON IBM, in same manner as Dr. Galen Buckwalter did, but using HEXACO model of personality (BIG FIVE, or OCEAN is obsolete now)

eHarmony and other dating sites are collaborating with big AI players like IBM Watson ???

Do you remember?
Facebook's Graph Search not good for Online Dating purposes.

Facebook / “graph search” feature / fun dating

Facebook overhauls News Feed in favor of 'meaningful social interactions'

Facebook uses GPS, location services to suggest new "friends" via AOL

Facebook Is NOT Primed To Disrupt Online Dating

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.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.
