Facebook’s Algorithm Changes Leave Dating Apps — Not Just Media Publishers — Frustrated By Reach Restrictions.


http://www.ibtimes.com/facebooks-algorithm-changes-leave-dating-apps-not-just-media-publishers-frustrated-2388592
Facebook introduced restrictions in early 2014 on the dating industry that required all companies, no matter the size, to be pre-approved. The move was an effort to crack down on advertisers posting content deemed too adult or just inappropriate.

Revenue growth has slowed at most of Rocket Internet's other 11 leading start-ups, ranging from furniture e-commerce and food delivery in Europe to online fashion in markets from India to Latin America and the Middle East.

Do you know that ALL European countries fit in Brazil, Russia, Africa or Australia?
It means: If you want to replicate a big success in Brazil, it will be as hard as the same to replicate it in ALL European countries, but in this case with 1/8 of population and the majority of the persons DO NOT own or WILL NOT use a credit/debit card to buy online!
They will prefer to research online and then buy offline.

FriendScout24 predicts future tendencies in Online Dating ?

https://www.friendscout24.de/magazin/dating-trends-die-zukunft-des-online-datings/

Five predictions:
- 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 ?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/06/meetic-launches-dating-bot-on-facebook.html

IAC (IACI) Bought European Online Dating Site FriendScout24 Via Meetic Group.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2014/07/iac-iaci-bought-european-online-dating.html


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?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2016/06/match-group-opened-umbrella-before-it.html


 
The Online Dating Industry does not need any improvement. It does need INNOVATIONS!

Please remember:
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.)
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2013/03/to-ruin-their-businesses.html
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

Through artificial intelligence, the bot is able to adapt its responses depending on the requests of its interlocutor.
Thus, it will help users in creating their profile and will show singles that match their criteria.

No one will innovate in the Online Dating Industry. 

My bet: Only a short term success. Social dating is vaporware. Online Dating for serious daters does not need to be more social, it needs to be more effective/efficient.  It needs to reduce the false positives problem and big data dating IS NOT the key to long-lasting romance.  The key to long-lasting romance is STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".

article: Dating app Happn “perfect for predators” due to GPS technology that shows where you are




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 pa
use in their headlong rush to social media” because a lot of that “data doesn’t go away.”

Mystery over bitcoin founder revealed ?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2015/12/mystery-over-bitcoin-founder-revealed.html




Please see: Hill, Austin, "Bitcoin: Is Cryptocurrency Viable?" (2014). CMC Senior Theses. Paper 902. http://scholarship.claremont.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1848&context=cmc_theses
As for 2014,
47 people in the world own 28.9% of Bitcoins.
880 people in the world own 21.5% of Bitcoins.
10,000 (ten thousand) people in the world own 24.8% of Bitcoins.
1 million people worldwide have 20.7% of Bitcoins.
the rest is considered lost.


Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies: at the same level to acquire shares of a company on the Stock Exchange, or bonds of an African country or disreputable unit shares in a mutual high risk fund.
The mining of Bitcoins seem to be a fraud, like taking a hammer and smash with that hammer 1m2 (square meter) of your home to collect a compensation, but that will not be enough to repair the damage.

Bitcoin seems like a big Ponzi scheme.

PAPER Design of reciprocal recommendation systems for online dating

Personality Based Recommender Systems are the next generation of recommender systems because they perform far better than Behavioural ones (past actions and pattern of personal preferences) 


That is the only way to improve recommender systems, to include the personality traits of their users. They need to calculate personality similarity between users.

In case you had not noticed, recommender systems are morphing to compatibility matching engines, as the same used in the Online Dating Industry.

Which is the RIGHT approach to innovate in the Personality Based Recommender Systems Arena?


T
he same approach to innovate in the Online Dating Industry == 16PF5 test or similar to assess personality traits and a new method to calculate similarity between quantized patterns.
See How LIFEPROJECT METHOD calculates similarity between quantized patterns using an adapted quantum mechanics math equation same as "Teller Ulam design".  
 
LIFEPROJECT METHOD is like the "Teller Ulam design" for the Online Dating Industry.
In this case 100 times more powerful than actual matching algorithms.

 
Not 100% better, 100 TIMES better

All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo.
