CEO of Affinitas ("EliteSingles") will be interviewed by Mark Brooks on the merger with Spark Networks during the Internet dating conference. The event is taking place on June 1-2, 2017 at the Sportsmen's Lodge Events Center in Studio City, CA. They will discuss the recent announcement that the company is to merge with Spark Networks, to create one of the world's largest online dating providers.

Affinitas GmbH. & Spark Networks Talks Merger Deal & Future Growth Strategy In Exclusive GDI Interview
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/05/affinitas-gmbh-spark-networks-talks.html
 

What I had understood: 
  •     They will run the companies separately, as if there were no intention to merge.
  •     They can not innovate in the Online Dating Industry.
  •     No mention to eHarmony, biggest enemy of EliteSingles / eDarling sites.
For 2017, Affinitas GmbH. approached Spark Networks (LOV) for a merger
"Affinitas GmbH's revenue is USD 86 Million LTM, with USD 8 Million EBITDA." ? Unaudited.

Spark Networks (LOV) and EliteSingles (Affinitas GmbH.) to Merge, Creating a Global Leader in Online Dating ?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/05/spark-networks-lov-and-elitesingles.html

Match Group is 10 times bigger than Spark + Affinitas merge.
eHarmony is is 2 or 3 times bigger than Spark + Affinitas merge.

EliteSingles / eDarling sites are only copycats of eHarmony.
A prospective client will not perceive eDarling / EliteSingles sites as better, superior or different than eHarmony's ones.
eHarmony has about 750,000 paid subscribers and 10 million active users, which has been steady for the past five years.  eHarmony's sites are 3 times bigger in active users and revenue than EliteSingles's sites.
And worse, Affinitas GmbH. can not beat and will never beat eHarmony Inc. in United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and United States.

eHarmony is a 16+ years old obsolete site. The success rate of eHarmony is less than 10%.
eHarmony is only supported by a big marketing budget and not by serious scientific evidence.
The 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 2017)

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.

ZOOSK SmartPick (formerly known as Zoosk's Scientific Matchmaking Service (ZSMS) )
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/03/zoosk-smartpick-formerly-known-as.html
is only a Behavioural Recommender System like Synapse from Match or UltraMatch from PlentyOfFish (POF) and Behavioural Recommender Systems CAN NOT outperform compatibility matching engines based on personality similarity.


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.


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"

All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo

They can not promise "the one" or "your soulmate" or a "perfect match" because they do not exist.
It will only exist a pool of compatible persons, not more than that.


And Bumble is backed by Badoo, in war with Tinder.

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. and Marrily in India.

AshleyMadison sinking ship?



Do not trust / believe article saying "AshleyMadison is back — and claims surprising user numbers"

http://nypost.com/2017/05/21/ashley-madison-is-back-and-claims-surprising-user-numbers/
 

Remember last October 2013:  


Fortress Investments, a New York hedge fund, will loan Avid Life Media USD50M over two years  
http://www.onlinepersonalswatch.com/news/2013/10/fortress-investments-hedge-fund-invests-50m-in-ashley-madison-.html
http://www.newsweek.com/2013/10/11/wall-street-loves-cheater-238080.html
then Alexa shows The Impact Team was really victorious. 
http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/ashleymadison.com
It seems no one trust AshleyMadison any more because it seems they STILL use fembots. 
Cheaters will use Tinder instead.  

Soon you will see online dating scam victims hiring hackers and private investigators to fight back bad online dating sites, destroying them from inside, ala AshleyMadison case!   

  
Please see:
AshleyMadison blackmail roars back to life ???

Alexa shows AshleyMadison is a sinking ship.
