Modern Dating

BRIMBANK WEEKLY - Nov 24 - Online dating no longer has the stigma it once had or is seen as a last resort. For many, it’s the first place they turn to as the more conventional means to meet their match. Australia’s first online dating site RSVP has recently celebrated its 15th birthday. They had ~1.8M members and ~8000 marriages and 900 babies from people who had met on the site. Speed dating is also taking off. Justin Parfitt, owner of Fast Impressions, started his company in 2002. Events include nights for people who like literature, travel and trivia, particular religions and can also cater to same sex relationships and even psychical preferences — such as tall men, slender women and nationalities.

PlentyofFish Rebrands As POF

OPW - Nov 23 - Just in case you missed it, PlentyofFish.com now drives to POF.com, and the site has been rebranded as POF. Its easier to remember, and easier to refer to in conversation and by 'word-of-mouse'. One of the tricks to viral marketing is to make it as simple as possible for people to refer to your brand. The perfect brand name is 2 syllables and 4 letters, apparently. POF is a whole lot easier to refer to and type-in than Plenty...of....fish. (Full disclosure: POF is a long term client of Courtland Brooks)

Cupid – Eurozone Crisis Fails To Stop Continent’s Love Life

SCOTSMAN - Nov 23 - Cupid said Europeans showed no signs of losing their appetite for “fun and love” amid the economic turmoil, keeping its rapid international expansion on track. Analysts at Peel Hunt believe Cupid's profits before tax and other deductions will reach L11M this year, up from L5.6M in 2010, and should hit L20M by 2013. CEO Bill Dobbie said the firm was spending ~ L30M on advertising this year – more than half of estimated revenues. Cupid mainly advertises online but Dobbie said that adverts direct to mobile phones was a rapidly growing area.

How Dating Sites Can Stop The Lying Before It Begins

IOVATION BLOG - Nov 22 - Every online user, including fraudsters, were granted a free pass by the Justice Department earlier this week for lying on the Internet. People can take comfort in knowing that they don’t have to worry about being prosecuted or hauled off to jail for telling a little white lie over the Internet. While Congress works on legislation that clarifies what would be grounds for prosecution when it comes to lying on the Internet, to protect their members dating sites need to take action by deploying anti-fraud detection tools that help them identify risky behavior such as iovation’s device identification service, that helps detect online scammers, spammers and bad actors attempting to mine the identity details of legitimate members.

Reveal Brain’s True Desires

MEN'SHEALTH - Nov 23 - braindesire.com tests users' brain using word recognition while subliminally exposing them to a person’s name and measures how much their brain is stimulated by the person. They can either test one person or compare two people to see whom their brain likes more. The website is based off a 2007 study conducted by researchers at Dartmouth College and Geneva University Hospital. The study found that women who were deemed to be in love and not in a companionate relationship were faster at word recognition when subliminally shown their loved one’s name.

Smartdate Forced To Shut Down

TECH CRUNCH FRANCE - Nov 21 - Why is the online dating site Smartdate launched in 2010 about to close? Not enough capital, its founder Fabrice Le Parc explains. Open in 6 languages after a successful fund-raising campaign, the second round started beginning of the summer 2011 did not work. Forced to shut down servers and dismiss all his employees, Fabrice Le Parc reckons that they should have searched for investors earlier in the process.
