The Acting Australian Information Commissioner Timothy Pilgrim said anyone using apps that reveals their whereabouts should think it through carefully.
“The personal information we share online shapes our online identity, and can form a digital footprint that can be difficult to erase,’’ he said.
“Our personal information is one of our most valuable assets, so it’s important we understand what’s collected, who it’s provided to and how it’s used.”
University of Melbourne computer privacy researched Dr Suelette Dreyfus said “people need to pause in their headlong rush to social media” because a lot of that “data doesn’t go away.”
Happn like Hinge, will be a "Stupid Investors' series" case of study.
Perhaps Happn will end like SmartDate!
Social dating is vaporware.
The Online Dating Industry does not need any improvement. It does need INNOVATIONS!
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.
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.
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", not 100% better, 100X better.
The Online Dating Industry needs a very powerful algorithm like the "Teller Ulam design". In this case 100 times more powerful than actual matching algorithms.
