The entrepreneur said that he had decided to scrap the “Intimate Encounters” option on the POF site due to complaints from some of its female users suffering unwanted attention.
In a message sent to all members, he said that only 6,041 of the 3.3 million people who use the site every day are in fact women looking for no-strings-attached trysts – adding “the ones with hot pictures are mostly men pretending to be women.”The computer systems graduate who founded the website - which now has a turnover of more than m (£6.6m) a year - in 2003, said he now wants it to now focus on ‘meaningful relationships.’Mr Frind said: “When I created POF, I wanted it to be all about finding relationships with the right person.
Plenty Of Fish has steadily lured in people seeking everything from no-strings attached hookups to marriage since CEO and founder Markus Frind launched the company from his Vancouver apartment in 2003.
By 2008, Frind had 15 million users, million in revenue and doubled his workforce — to two.
The Match brands and Plenty Of Fish both make revenue through a combination of advertising and paid subscription options.
IAC, the parent company of Match Group, owns a variety of media and Internet properties including the Princeton Review, Investopedia, Vimeo and the Daily Beast.
But the founder of one of Britain’s biggest dating website has now decided to take radical action to root out fake and sleazy profiles - after revealing that many of the “women” who use the hook-ups section of his site are actually men in disguise.
The Match Group says the deal is subject to approval from the federal industry minister and is expected to close early in the fourth quarter.
On the dating site Plenty of Fish, his image was attached to a profile belonging to “scoobmike,” a man purportedly in Saskatoon, Sask., describing himself as a “non-smoker with athletic type body” who was looking for women between the ages of 18 and 46. Keith Tomasek, a lecturer teaching social media at London’s Western University, said the use of Rafferty’s photo illustrates the lawless nature of the Internet.
There’s nothing to stop people from posting whatever they want, he said.
He wrote that he is “caucasian pisces with brown hair.” He describes his perfect first date as, “Dinner, movie, walk by the river.
Talk and get to know one another, Do something fun.” An anonymous source who contacted QMI Agency about the photo said he contacted Plenty of Fish and both Woodstock and Saskatoon police about the image. Plenty of Fish spokesperson Shannon Smith said they “diligently monitor our website internally and our users’ safety is our top priority.” The website is “community-driven” and once the photo was reported it would have been removed immediately.
Finding a date online should not be a hassle; it should be a fun and enjoyable experience!
