PAPER: Tell Me Something I Don't Know: Analyzing OkCupid Profiles
Please remember: When the IAC Personals, now Match Group, bought OKCupid (6+ 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 (4+ years old site) can not outperform Badoo (10+ years old site).
And Badoo also owns Bumble.
