Founder Of Lavalife Interviews Founder Of POF

BETAKIT - Jan 30 - Bruce Croxon, founder of Lavalife, sat down with Markus Frind, founder of POF, for an interview. While Lavalife had 400 employees and a paid service, Frind worked on the site alone and made it the largest dating site in the world. Frind said he wasn't too focused on beating Lavalife, and instead turned toward the US market. Lavalife was sold in 2010 for ~CAD$ 200M. POF was sold to The Match Group for ~CAD$ 800M ($575M).

Singles Can Have 'Backup Plan' With A New App

HOWSTUFFWORKS - Jan 28 - Backup Plan app is a new app created by the folks who created The Breakup Shop. The app will let users enter into a legally binding agreement to marry by an agreed-upon date, should they both still be single. Users create a profile and enter a marriage deadline date. They then rifle through local singles via a "Tinder-like interface." Should two people agree to serve as marriage backups, they establish the terms of the contract and sign it digitally.

Privacy Issues Could Kill Match Group

INVESTORPLACE - Jan 27 - The real value in many online businesses is consumer data. However, that data carries the risk of being hacked. IAC spun off Match.com and lumped in The Princeton Review as well as Tutor.com. Lumping them together makes no sense unless there is a cross-promotion or data sharing between them. Jennifer Kohn, SVP of Communications at The Princeton Review said that its data is stored and managed completely independently of any other Match company. There are no US laws regarding data sharing but government crackdown on privacy and data sharing is coming. It could gut Match.com and its ability to cross-promote and share data.
