TheDatingStudio.com - Termination Of White Label Dating Services

THE DATING STUDIO - Aug 22 - TheDatingStudio.com share the database with Cupid plc. Recently Cupid plc decided to sell off its "casual" dating assets. The new owners of the Cupid "casual" brands have decided that they no longer wish to support third party clients. TheDatingStudio is giving its partners two months notice to terminate their white label relationship.

Mark Brooks: Our client, Dating Factory is our recommended option for orphaned Cupid white label partners. They're as solid as a rock and growing, and the technology, reporting and rev shares are first rate.

Babyklar.nu: Dating Site For Danes Ready For Baby

THE GUARDIAN - Aug 22 - Emmanuel Limal, the 43-year-old actor from France, was tired of meeting women who weren't ready to start a family. He set up Babyklar.nu, Baby-ready dating site. It functions like a normal dating site but every potential dater is asked to be honest about their wish to start a family soon. The response to the site has been overwhelming, he said. "We had 50 sign-ups an hour when we launched in June and I'm fully expecting the first Babyklar.nu baby by next summer." More men have signed up than women (53% to 47%).

Coffee Meets Bagel Launches iOS App

TECH CRUNCH - Aug 22 - Launched in New York City in 2012, the startup is also today releasing its iOS app, which includes the same features as the free web service. Coffee Meets Bagel works like this: After signing up through Facebook, users can specify personal details as well as what they look for in a date. At noon each day, they receive one match, or “bagel” as the company calls them. They then have a time limit to either “Pass” or “Like.” If two people mutually like each other, they are put in touch through a private company texting line. Coffee Meets Bagel has raised $600K from Lightbank and has accumulated ~80K users. The startup has made ~1.5M matches, with 70% of members checking the service daily.

OKCupid's Security Flaw

BUSINESS INSIDER - Aug 20 - OkCupid uses an instant login feature. Whenever the site sends an email, links inside that email contain a unique identifier (called a token) that, upon clicking, will log users into their OKCupid account without a password. The trouble presents itself when people begin forwarding these emails or otherwise distributing these custom links. Mark Brooks: Ease of access vs security. Given the privacy concerns of many iDating users, the decision to improve conversion factors over protecting privacy is interesting. You can be sure that this was tested, and the conclusion drawn that making the email based logins was worthwhile the odd user screw-up. What's your thoughts? Which way would you sway with your dating site?

Dating sites need to offer voice services to remain connected with their users...rather than disinheriting them when they want to speak on the phone - Mark Brooks

Inside IvyConnect's Exclusive Dating Scene

THE AWL - Aug 20 - Asking for a business card typically signals an intention to keep the relationship strictly professional—but that's not the case at meetings arranged by IvyConnect, the members-only social and professional club founded by Harvard Business School fellows, Beri Meric and Philipp Triebel. In just a year and a half, IvyConnect has grown from fairly elitist dating startup—then called IvyDate—to elitist lifestyle service with ~3K members and another 1K on the waiting list. IvyConnect hand-picks members. Applicants are approved by IvyConnect’s five-person membership committee and then pay $45 each month or $500 each year. IvyConnect says they haven't spent a dollar on paid advertising. Meric and Triebel hope to turn it into something larger than just an excuse to get drunk and mingle. One in-development feature is IvyCareers, a way for members to help one another advance professionally. Mark Brooks: People will pay more to get more. In the IvyConnect case, they'll pay to save time sifting through profiles. Dating sites help users sift more quickly and effectively. This service is small, but will do well over the longer haul, but staying focused.

Hinge Dating App Making Smart Match Recommendations

THE VERGE - Aug 16 - Hinge is a lot like Tinder, a popular hookup app that only reveals potential matches once both people show interest, except it only surfaces matches that are friends of friends. Hinge doesn’t ask the usual array of questions but instead relies on pre-existing signals to make assumptions about you. Solely by examining your friends and interests, the service can predict your political leaning, your age, your sexual orientation, and your race.
