Do you know OkCupid dating service? Yes, it’s one of the not so exciting services, where you can make a complicated profile and add some photos. Oh, I forgot. This thing can match people! What you have to do is just simply answer to like a billion questions about yourself. Other people do the same and it works (somehow). But. The OkCupid team has been likely bored with their app, because they started to tamper with their matching system. And with the users’ trust as a result. What they actually did? They’ve started to match a dissociable people as part of an experiment.
“When we tell people they are a good match, they act as if they are. Even when they should be wrong for each other.”
Well, OkCupid, you just said that your unique value, the matching algorithm does not work. Maybe it’s time to rename the service? “Placebo”? Btw, one of the users has also confirmed that this matching system is a rather meaningless piece of digits.
“I am dating someone off of your site which told me I was only 46 percent compatible with them. She is one of the best people I’ve ever met in my life.”
