Maple Match Taps Anti-Trump Lovers

Recently I tweeted about Maple Match. The service is waitlisting members with a promise to make it easy for Americans to find the ideal Canadian partner to save them from the unfathomable horror of a Trump presidency.

Tinder Invented Sex, Goes Insane

Longtime dating expert Julie Spira wrote a piece on HuffPo about a Vanity Fair article,  Tinder and the Dawn of “Dating Apocalypse.”. Update: Tinder just lost its mind on Twitter over a Vanity Fair story. Grab the popcorn, this is going to be good. I couldn’t even bring myself to finish the VF article. Story after […]

Why Bots Like Dating Sites

Dating services employ any number of  anti-fraud solutions. Over the years I’ve seen registered devices (doesn’t work), geo-IP lookups and all sorts of home-brewed solutions. Are You Human is a technology used to fight bots, which supposedly account for 2/3’s of most dating site traffic. Back in the day, Markus at POF told me that something […]

Is The End Of Ashley Madison Near?

Cheater dating site Ashley Madison has been hacked by someone who worked there in the past in a technical capacity. The person was upset that AM was charging people to remove their profiles completely. Instead of doing what everyone else supposedly does, AM charged $17 for what amounts to running an SQL database query to […]

Plentyoffish 2006 Canadian National TV Interview

Fun look at POF from the early days. In 2006 POF served up 600M pageviews each month, earning $10,000 a day. LOL@ 1:58. The video owner has a video showing the new Match Mobile circa 2007.

AARP Wants Dating Sites To Crack Down On Fraud

How interesting that the AARP ignored the dating industry for over a decade and now calls for the industry to crack down on fraud, probably because lots of their members are getting scammed on their own dating site, powered by HowAboutWe, which is owned by Match. More info on the deal. I wonder if AARP talked […]
