New dating site that everything is
Dr Steve Carter, a data scientist who helped design and build the psychometric and relationship models that became the basis of e Harmony — the dating site where he was a founding member and worked for nearly 20 years — is working at the social network, out of its offices in Los Angeles.But Facebook has confirmed to us that Carter is working on the new dating service, and the company declined to say what he is doing.You always have the choice to experience our sites without personalized advertising based on your web browsing activity by visiting the DAA’s Consumer Choice page, the NAI's website, and/or the EU online choices page, from each of your browsers or devices.
Applying Carter’s concept of matching data between users on e Harmony, Facebook already has a huge trove of information about you, based on what you post and like and share.
It also has algorithms that tell you how well a candidate’s skills and background are suited to a particular job.
Given Facebook’s interest and work in recruitment and job finding, it will be interesting to see how and if that product also gets developed.
This sales director for “e-commerce and dating” started his new role in January 2018, working out of Paris (so I guess there is already some early considering for how to build this as a business too).
There are two recent hires from Tinder, one in Los Angeles and one in Menlo Park.
And if we’re focused on helping people build meaningful relationships then this is perhaps the most meaningful one of all.” There hasn’t been too much written about how e Harmony’s algorithm works, but in a lecture in May 2017 (two months before officially leaving e Harmony), Carter opened up about it to describe it a little.
