Gleeden.com Launches In The U.S.

GLOBE NEWSWIRE - Nov 16 - Gleeden.com, an extramarital site already popular in Europe, is launching in the US. The site was launched by brothers who first conceived the idea from listening to the frustrations and marital problems of the women surrounding them; friends, family and colleagues. "It is the first dating site that is completely developed by women to cater to women's needs. Other websites focus on the needs and wants for men to have physical affairs without being discovered. Gleeden.com promotes honesty and freedom within a couple", the site claims. According to Gleeden, extramarital affairs can intervene as therapy for a couple.

Study Reveals Racial Segregation In Online Dating

THE GRIO - Nov 16 - After analyzing 1M+ profiles on a mainstream dating site, researchers at the University of California Berkeley, concluded that whites are highly unlikely to initiate contact with black people. 80% of the communication initiated by whites was to other whites. Black members were ten times more likely to contact whites. According to a 2009 analysis, black women on OkCupid.com get the "cold shoulder" from everyone, including their black male counterparts. Ron Worthy, a spokesperson for Blackpeoplemeet.com, a subsidiary of Match.com, says that this illustrates the importance and increasing popularity of niche dating sites. AfroRomance.com is specifically geared toward interracial dating. Rob Thompson started the AfroRomance.com because it was difficult to tell who was truly interested in interracial relationships on conventional sites. He went onto meet his wife, who is from Kenya on AfroRomance.com.

FriendFinder Networks Reports Third Quarter 2011 Results

PR NEWSWIRE - Nov 14 - Revenue for the Q3 '11 was $82.7M. Revenue was impacted by a decrease in traffic and a decline in new subscribers and renewal orders primarily in European markets. Social networking revenue was offset by an increase in live interactive video. "While we achieved certain business objectives, we are not satisfied with our overall performance in the third quarter.

DOJ: Lying On Match.com Needs To Be A Crime

CNET NEWS - Nov 15 - The U.S. Department of Justice is defending computer hacking laws that make it a crime to use a fake name on Facebook or lie about your weight in an online dating profile. Rhe Justice Department argues that it must be able to prosecute violations of Web sites' often-ignored, always-unintelligible "terms of service" policies. The law in question, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, has been used by the Justice Department to prosecute a woman who used a fake MySpace account to verbally attack a 13-year old girl who then committed suicide.
