Mobile Dating Apps Grow In Popularity

WASHINGTON POST - Aug 19 - Americans now use dating apps more than online dating sites, according to a 2011 report by Flurry Analytics. Globally, the mobile dating market is expected to be worth $2.3 billion by 2016, up from $1 billion in 2011, according to Juniper Research. In June, six participants signed up for a mobile dating boot camp, organized by cyber-dating expert Julie Spira, at the iDate Mobile dating conference. They sat before a roomful of industry executives to discuss the apps they used for two weeks and provided honest feedbacks. Developers are turning to real-life concepts to woo users, like the common friend. That’s where Facebook comes in, with apps like Zoosk and Are you Interested? A new wave of apps such as Coffee Meets Bagel and Yoke focus on common friends and use Facebook profile information to match people. “You can judge a person by the company that they keep,” said Mark Brooks, analyst and consultant to the Internet dating industry. "There is no secret formula for an app to succeed", said Brooks. But “the more you can model the real world, the better you’ll do,” he said. New mobile app developers realize this and are tapping into the wealth of information available on Facebook, while trying to balance users’ privacy concerns. Spira says that just like online dating, people should apply common sense with an app.

Beautiful People Travel Free With MissTravel.com

AUSTIN CULTUREMAP - MrFunGuy has money, but apparently no one to travel with. ICraveAdventure is attractive, but lacks travel funds. The site MissTravel.com puts the two of them together. Is this matchmaking or nothing more than a travel escort service? As the founder reveals, one of the benefits touted by MissTravel is the ability for Attractive members to accumulate frequent flyer points to redeem for future travel on their own. The site's founder, Brandon Wade, who also founded SeekingArrangement.com and WhatsYourPrice.com where rich people bid on dates for beautiful people, believes that money plays a big role in how we express our love and care for someone. Born in Singapore to strict Chinese parents, Wade says he was terrified of girls. “I felt so much pain in my life trying to date and haven’t been very successful. I figured there should be a website for guys like me.”

Creative Ways Of Promoting Your Dating Site – QR Codes

DATING FACTORY NEWSLETTER - Aug 13 - When people scan or read a QR code with their iPhone, Android or other camera-enabled Smartphone, they then can link to digital content on the web; activate a number of phone functions including email, IM and SMS; and connect the mobile device to a web browser. If you have promoted offline in the past, your potential users had to type the URL in their browser. Now everything is much easier – they just scan the QR code and they are on the site.
