A multitude of dating sites have popped up over the past few years to battle the likes of Match.com, eHarmony and Plenty Of Fish – some promise to help find love with those near by, while others are a bit off the wall: like find love based on shoes you buy. theComplete.me is a new way to find love: via your social media data.
theComplete.me has launched a Facebook app that analyzes your Facebook social graph and other social sites to find compatible matches for you. Using a Pinterest style interface, the app looks through items such as: Likes, interests, messages sent, profiles viewed, and connections to find possible companions. And for an even more immersive experience the application can also connect into your Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, Foursquare, GoodReads, Instragram and Photobucket accounts.
Once a compilation of possible dating partners are provided, users can click into each profile to see what you have in common so you can message them and possibly find love. Where theComplete.me is able to be better then the other new pop-up dating sites, is its integration with social media. No dating sites have had the entire compiled experience of a dating platform integrated into social life to determine compatibility. A sneaky little add-on as well is that the site will provide users the ability to attach their eHarmony, Match.com or Zoosk ID’s to their profiles to aggregate results and direct message these users for free instead of using the big-boys sites’.
We think there is a great place for dating via social media, it takes away the painful task of answering a series of questions and looks at what you do, rather than what you say you do or are. With some user interface upgrades and cleaned up styling, we think theComplete.me dating idea could be the future eHarmony.
What do you think? Would you use social media analytics as a basis for finding love?
