A Match "glitch" reactivated a bunch of old profiles, raising concerns about user data

It was not a "glitch" perhaps, it was a revenge via Badoo - Bumble war.
If Badoo hacked Match databases and plans to demonstrate Match dirty tricks to entice customers to subscribe.
Who knows?

Just a year ago
Dave Evans said "Match sent me 12 matches and a msg saying my profile was approved.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/04/dave-evans-said-match-sent-me-12.html
This profile has been deactivated for years. Bug or desperation?"

"There's no Pepsi to Tinder’s Coke"
Badoo is #1. Tinder started as copycat of Badoo, in 2012
In 2014 Badoo backed Bumble.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/03/tinders-parent-company-match-group-is.html

Mandy Ginsberg, recently appointed CEO of Match Group, is puppet of Barry Diller
and
Whitney Wolfe is puppet of Andrey Andreev. Badoo has 79% of Bumble.

Match Group is in war with Chinese MOMO and "Russian Mafia backed" Badoo.
Match Group big debt, in the range of USD 1.2 Billion.

Barry Diller too old, Match Group and IAC can collapse if he pass away.

Badoo next feature: Virtual & Augmented Reality ?
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/04/badoo-next-feature-virtual-augmented.html

Perhaps Russian Mafia from Badoo (owner of Bumble), and believed mainly in the spyware business,  will hack servers from Match Group and reveal Match Group really creates / created fake profiles from inside to entice customers to subscribe, and will incinerate Match Group as "Impact Team" incinerated AshleyMadison some time ago.

eHarmony is investing in machine learning to make smarter matches???

eHarmony 2018, instead of innovate in the Online Dating Industry, jokes at April Fools’ Day
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/03/eharmony-2018-instead-of-innovate-in.html

about "Dating website eHarmony's 'scientific' match ad banned" in UK
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/01/about-dating-website-eharmonys.html


------------------- eHarmony should be closed forever for fraud!
The success rate of eHarmony is less than 10%.

eHarmony is ONLY a 17+  years old obsolete site and a HOAX, based on a big scientific fraud, only sustained by big marketing budget.
The Big Five normative test used by eHarmony, had been proven/revealed as an incomplete and incorrect model to assess/measure personality of persons.
It is a HOAX, a FRAUD to use the Big Five normative test in year 2018. 

 
eHarmony was copycatted in several countries like
the online dating sites EliteSingles in Canada, Australia, USA, UK, Chile, Mexico; eDarling in Spain, German, France, Russia;
also TeAmo in Russia is another copycat of eHarmony;
esync (eSynchrony) in Singapore,
MiMediaManzana in Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Chile, etc.,
Marrily in India
and
LemonSwan in Germany and other countries. 


The key to long-lasting romance; COMPATIBILITY is: STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests".
High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.


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"

All other proposals are NOISE and perform as placebo.

http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2018/03/wp-redditors-made-graphics-to-visualize.html



Social dating is vaporware. The Online Dating Industry needs innovations!


Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the Big Five model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead and another method to calculate similarity.  

Breaking "the online dating sound barrier" is to achieve at least:
3 most compatible persons in a 100,000 persons database.
12 most compatible persons in a 1,000,000 persons database.
48 most compatible persons in a 10,000,000 persons database.
100 times better than Compatibility Matching Algorithms used by actual online dating sites!

High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.

Please remember: In the case of Yuliana Avalos and Melissa Midwest former 2014 big lawsuit againts Match Group, third-party scammers in Africa or wherever were creating fake profiles and catfishing with them.
IAC and Match Group were essentially aware of that situation and did nothing to stop it.
The USA Court ruled that IAC and Match Group were not responsible.
Attorney Evan Spencer, said that despite the fact that anti-scammer technology is available, Match Group failed to use such things as face-recognition software – which would have discovered that Yuliana Avalos's pictures were being used hundreds of times.
Yuliana Avalos has argued in a former 2014 big lawsuit against Match that photos of her were posted without her permission on the site as part of a scam that drove a man to commit suicide.

PAPER: An Homophily-based Approach for Fast Post Recommendation on Twitter





http://openproceedings.org/2018/conf/edbt/paper-96.pdf

Please see also the paper:
Recent Advances in Recommender Systems: Matrices, Bandits, and Blenders
http://openproceedings.org/2018/conf/edbt/georgiakoutrika.pdf
and
PAPER: An Efficient Similarity Measure for User-based Collaborative Filtering Recommender Systems Inspired by the Physical Resonance Principle
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/12/paper-efficient-similarity-measure-for.html

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.
http://onlinedatingsoundbarrier.blogspot.com.ar/2017/01/paper-comparative-study-of-people-to_14.html  
 

They need to calculate personality similarity between users but there are different formulas to calculate similarity.

In case you did not see, recommender systems are morphing to compatibility matching engines, as the same used in the Online Dating Industry for years, with low success rates until now because they mostly use the Big Five model to assess personality and the Pearson correlation coefficient to calculate similarity.
Please remember: Personality traits are highly stable in persons over 25 years old to 45 years old.
 

The key to long-lasting romance: COMPATIBILITY is exactly STRICT PERSONALITY SIMILARITY and not "meet other people with similar interests or political views". 

 WorldWide, there are over 5,000 (five thousand) online dating sites
- but no one is using the 16PF5 (or similar) to assess personality of its members!
- but no one calculates similarity with a quantized pattern comparison method!
- but no one can show Compatibility Distribution Curves to each and every of its members!!!
i.e. if you are a man seeking women, to show how compatible you are with a 20,000,000 women database, and to select a bunch of 100 women from 20,000,000 women database.

- but no one is scientifically proven!  No actual online dating site  is "scientifically proven" because no one can prove its matching algorithm can match prospective partners who will have more stable and satisfying relationships (and very low divorce rates) than couples matched by chance, astrological destiny, personal preferences, searching on one's own, or other technique as the control group in a peer reviewed Scientific Paper for the majority (over 90%) of its members.  
 

Which is the RIGHT approach to innovate in the Personality Based Recommender Systems Arena? 
The 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.
Online Dating sites have very big databases, in the range of 20,000,000 (twenty million) profiles, so the Big Five model or the HEXACO model are not enough for predictive purposes. That is why I suggest the 16PF5 test instead and another method to calculate similarity.

High precision in matching algorithms is precisely the key to open the door and leave the infancy of compatibility testing.
Without offering the NORMATIVE 16PF5 (or similar test measuring exactly the 16 personality factors) for serious dating, it will be impossible to innovate and revolutionize the Online Dating Industry.
