‘Sugar Babies’ Seek Friendship And Help With Tuition

MIAMI HERALD - Jan 25 - Three Florida schools, including Florida International University, have had so many students join a sugar-daddy dating site that they’ve been included in the site’s ‘Top 20’ universities of 2011. For the women on Seeking Arrangement.com, what they’re seeking is often dollar-specific: as much as $10K a month, or more, to date a certain well-heeled man. College students make up about 40% of the Sugar Babies on SeekingArrangement.com. 10 to 20 escorts are removed daily.

Badoo: A Very Social Network

WSJ - Jan 24 - Badoo isn’t well known in the U.K. or U.S. but the service is big in France, Italy, Spain and Brazil and operates in 180 countries. Russian-born serial entrepreneur Andrey Andreev founded the service as a run-of-the-mill social network in 2006. Badoo, he says, is like a nightclub on your phone. The most popular age group is 25-34 years old, although one-third of users are over 35. This latter group spends the most money. It has 7 billion page views a month, and ~1 million users online at any time. The company is profitable and did one round of funding. $30 million from Finam for 10% of the company. It has 200+ employees.

Religious People Better Adjusted Psychologically

STOPTHEACLU - Jan 23 - Psychological research has found that religious people feel great about themselves, with a tendency toward higher social self-esteem and better psychological adjustment than non-believers. But a new study published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, finds that this is only true in countries that put a high value on religion. The researchers got their data from eDarling, a European dating site that is affiliated with eHarmony. Like eHarmony, eDarling uses a long questionnaire to match clients with potential dates. It includes a question about how important your personal religious beliefs are and questions that get at social self-esteem and how psychologically well-adjusted people are.
