Proprietary Mathematical Algorithms that Really Work!
Proprietary Mathematical Algorithms…This is all behind the scenes stuff of OKCupid but it really works and it is fun to match people up with amazing accuracy. OKCupid the nation’s largest free online dating site and has seen a record jump in membership this past January. With the state of the economy, singles are looking to meet others online and not spend up to $1,000 a year with other subscription-based sites. It has always been surprising that dating is the only social media category with leaders who charge subscriptions. People are joining social networks more frequently to interact with people they know in the real world and they are using these sites to stay in-touch with friends and family. While online dating sites and social networks provide users a new way to communicate via technology, the way people interact on a social network such as Facebook or MySpace is very different than how people interact on online dating sites like OKCupid.com.
