Facebook Unleashes Cupid Potential

USA TODAY - Jan 17 - Facebook is becoming an online love connection — or maybe a meat market. Facebook's new Graph Search, in limited beta release, extends searches for singles on the network to friends of friends. The new feature, primarily for finding what friends "Like" from music to food and more, is expected to be available more widely over the next few months. It offers a speedy way to sort potential mates. Men will be able to hunt for single women who live in their locale and like a particular taco stand, action movies and sports teams, for example. Dating norms, however, have already taken root on Facebook. People have long-perused the photos and postings of members in the game of attraction, says Julie Spira, a digital-dating maven who runs CyberDatingExpert.com. "It's the world's largest social network, and they could be the world's largest dating network if they want to go there," Spira said. The Search Graph, for now, only culls "Like" selections and has yet to tap into profiles or News Feed data.

LikeIt.com Raises $500K

PR WEB - Jan 18 - People Discovery site theComplete.me raised $500K in financing from Western Technology Investment and relaunched as LikeIt.com. Similar to Facebook’s new Graph Search beta product, LikeIt enables social people discovery, helping users connect to others who are talking about the things they like and share their attitudes. The LikeIt social graph, already ~20M people strong, expands people search beyond the Facebook network, allowing users to easily aggregate interests and activities from eight other social networks.

LikeBright Received New Funding

GEEKWIRE - Jan 16 - LikeBright, the online dating site that taps into the power of social networks to find one’s perfect match, has received funding from the Bing Fund, the newly-formed investment vehicle of Microsoft’s search engine. “Most single people meet their partners through friends, and lots of people like to set their friends up,” said founder Nick Soman. “We give them a simple, social and safe way to do this online." Soman declined to disclose the size of the investment from the Bing Fund. LikeBright previously raised $650,000.

Circl.es Reaches 10,000 Users

BETAKIT - Jan 15 - Circl.es launched in March 2012 and currently has 10K users concentrated mostly in San Francisco, with a small audience in New York City. Circl.es connects to a user’s Facebook account and without creating any postings or notifications, presents potential dates through their Facebook profiles and basic information. The site touts itself as “built for people who hate online dating.” Circl.es presents potential matches based on proximity and if they meet a user’s criteria. There are other sites like Circl.es, such as TheDatable, yoke.me and theComplete.me (now LikeIt) also using Facebook to power online dating.

OkCupid Launches 'Crazy Blind Date' App

PRESS RELEASE - Jan 15 - Crazy Blind Date (CBD) uses math to set singles up on blind dates with a few hours notice. “People will say that CBD is too crazy,” said Sam Yagan, OkCupid Co-Founder (CEO Match.com), “But for a whole generation of young singles, it’s going to be a great adventure, and a great complement to traditional online dating.” Users choose which nights to go on dates. Pick their favorite bar/coffee shop. CBD does the rest and sends a confirmation to both parties. One hour before the scheduled date users can anonymously IM, so they can find each other. After the date ends, CBD collects feedback. Users can vouch for their date by purchasing CBD “Kudos” for them. This incentivizes good behavior. The more Kudos daters collect, the more dates they get. “Never before has a dating app allowed singles to pay on a per-date basis, and to vary that payment based on the quality of the date itself,” continued Yagan. To celebrate the launch of CBD, OkCupid, has named today, “LOVE IS BLIND” day. Every one of the ten million photos on OkCupid has been removed from the site. Today they'll make their dating decisions based on words and wits alone. (CBD was designed in collaboration with Huge).
