New bunch of fresh and funny screenshots of EliteSingles USA (Affinitas GmbH)

copycat of eHarmony Inc.













EliteSingles in only a copycat of eHarmony. Nothing more than that!
eHarmony, is a 16+ 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.


A prospective client will not perceive eDarling/EliteSingles sites as better, superior or different than eHarmony's ones.



Testing the site with a dummy very tall woman (6' 11" or taller in heigth, the upper limit you can choose)
Some suggested matches are 7' or taller.
Suggested matches are very very tall men!


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Height_in_sports (see Basketball)
 The average American male is 5 ft 9.3 in (1.76 m) and 99% are 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) or shorter.
 Yet, the average player in the National Basketball Association (NBA) is listed at 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m).

Tinder’s newest app, Tinder Stacks, lets you swipe on anything!



https://techcrunch.com/2016/09/21/tinders-newest-app-tinder-stacks-lets-you-swipe-on-anything/

Tinder offers "social discovery, gamification, location and messaging features." same as Facebook perhaps.
but can not monetize as expected.
Perhaps there is an internal war between Tinder and Match App.
If Tinder is cannibalizing Match and Match Group now wants to promote more Match App and not much Tinder because Tinder is not monetizing as expected?

Tinder tried to be the next .... Facebook (Forbes saga).

Tinder will use Spotify to show your dates your favorite music

Tinder in inside war with new Match App.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsbeat/article/37421585/tinder-boss-we-dont-get-distracted-by-the-competition


Please do not forget when the IAC Personals, now Match Group, bought OKCupid (5+ years ago) for an astronomical amount of money, the OKCupid team had the task to copycat Badoo, but they failed in that mission. IAC Personals backed Tinder instead (via Hatch Labs), as the copycat of Badoo.
But Tinder can not outperform Badoo (10+ years old site).
And Badoo also owns Bumble.

Match Group, parent company of Tinder, has a big debt of USD 1.2 Billion.
The Match Group is only a collection of old and obsolete online dating sites: Match, Meetic, Chemistry, OkCupid, LoveScout24 (FriendScout24), OurTime, HowAboutWe and many more!
Match Group does not know how to innovate in the Online Dating Industry.
 

Facebook apologizes for feeding inflated video-view numbers to advertisers



http://arstechnica.com/business/2016/09/facebook-apologizes-for-feeding-inflated-video-view-numbers-to-advertisers/

Ad buying agency Publicis Media was told by Facebook that the earlier counting method likely overestimated average time spent watching videos by between 60% and 80%, according to a late August letter Publicis Media sent to clients that was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.

They are full (in excess) of phantom companies, shell companies.
And not only they have lots of phantom companies, shell companies. There is a very complicated and intriguing interlace of them. (very suspicious situation)
There is a very intriguing interlace of "Jade xxxx GmbH.", "Brillant xxxx GmbH.", "Bambino xx V V UG", "VRB GmbH. & Co. B-xxx KG" and "Juwel xxx V V UG" and other companies !!!
