- Dating-Trends: Omni-Dating, Analog and digital worlds merge with reality.
- Love at First Byte, Automated dating. Thanks learning algorithms and data analysis, to study the behavior, apps can decide for themselves when, where and with whom a dating process is initiated.
- DIY-Dating: The automation would also strengthen the counter-trend toward "do it yourself"
- Romantic Gamification: augmented and virtual reality.
- Flexicurity Flirts: The dating users of tomorrow expect security and flexibility: flexicurity.
FriendScout24's - BeziehungsQuotienten-Check (BQ-Check) is a HOAX, based on a Big Scientific Fraud. That compatibility test DOES NOT include any personality assessment.
Meetic launches dating bot on Facebook Messenger ?
IAC (IACI) Bought European Online Dating Site FriendScout24 Via Meetic Group.
The Match Group is only a collection of old and obsolete online dating sites: Match, Meetic, Chemistry, OkCupid, FriendScout24, OurTime, HowAboutWe, PlentyOfFish and many more and all of them are past their primes, reached operating ceiling and they are in decadence. The Match Group is not going to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry in the next years.
Match Group opened the umbrella before it rains?
The Online Dating Industry does not need any improvement. It does need INNOVATIONS!
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.
The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY, and not "meet other people with similar interests"
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.
