Needs some changes

Couple of things, the Your Matches should not be showing me a majority of users that ‘Wouldn’t Date a Smoker’ when one lists that they smoke often. It’s a total waste of my time to be reviewing these profiles to find at the very bottom the person wouldn’t date a smoker. Not to mention, this information is hidden to non-upgraded users, so if one is not upgraded, how much time are they wasting for the other person sending messages to someone that would never date them? This should also be an option in the refine search. Speaking of the search, if a person puts in show me users within X amount of miles, don’t automatically expand the search if there are not enough users within that parameter. If I’m only going to date people with 25 Miles of me why would you expand the search and show me people 100 miles away?? If there is not enough users that fit my parameters fine, show me the ones that do and stop. Time is valuable to everyone and there are features of this app that waste a ton of it with results that just don’t fit what you’re looking for because you arbitrarily decide to mix in.
Also your block feature is useless if the person you block can still view your profile. I moved and had a user blocked and just received a notice that she ‘liked’ me. So now she knows where I live again. Thanks for the great safety feature.

Lesson learned, don’t even bother

Been using POF for a few years now. The app works fine it’s the company that gets zero stars. 10 million active users is a lie, I’m guessing from my searches on the pc that tell you if they are online, online today, online in the last week, online within thirty days, then all the others. All the other profiles that have not logged within the last thirty days is absurd. It’s false advertising. Then the meet me feature, they send unpaid profiles, “me” emails that specially tell you who sent it. Then you go to the meet me part of the app, WOW they are either the first or second choice. You click on the meet me, another WOW you matched, ROFLMFAO, I have messaged several asking about their choice. 1 in 25 said yes, the other 24 never responded back. Now to the scammers, catfishers, prostitution, thieves, and liars. It’s just not worth the hassle. My suggestion, purge your inactive profiles, delete them, put a time limit on inactive accounts. That would not be good for advertising, that’s not going to happen. Instead they will have people like me that will no longer use their service, if asked will tell everyone to stay away. You would have more luck at a bar. I’m sure you have seen this, POF stands for plenty of fakes. That is a very true statement. I should have listened to my friends when they gave me the advice to stay away. Nobody is this lonely.

You will have to pay for this in time

THIS IS NOT FREE. You cannot do almost anything, see who likes you, click on profiles to look at those who like you etc. unless you pay for their service. This is set up so you can infrequently match with some locals, but inevitable need to buy a subscription to effectively communicate with anyone or even just browse profiles. Technically, yes, you can get away with doing this entirely free, but what really is free is setting up and having your profile. If you want to legitimately meet anyone, go ahead and just buy the subscription because you will have to, they make you. They even give people the option to only receive messages from upgraded accounts, which is pretty much all the legitimate accounts on here. While in the app, most of the functions lead you to a link to buy their subscription, and you cannot do anything other than watch people on live stream or browse through their selection of “potential matches” which 99% of the time will not include anyone who has already liked you, forcing you to pay for a premium membership just to see these members. I would give this app zero stars for misleading all of their users, but sadly I cannot. Outside of this huge issue, I would still only give the app 3 stars.

POF (dating website)

Canadian online dating service

Plenty of Fish is a Canadian online dating service, popular primarily in Canada, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Brazil,[2] and the United States.[3] It is available in nine languages. The company, which is based in Vancouver, British Columbia[4] generates revenue through advertising and premium memberships.[5] While it is free to use, Plenty of Fish offers premium services as part of their upgraded membership, such as allowing users to see who has "liked" a member through the service's MeetMe feature, and whether a message has been read and/or deleted.[6]

History[edit]

Markus Frind, CEO of Plenty of Fish Media Inc., graduated in 1999 from British Columbia Institute of Technology with a diploma in Computer Systems Technology,[7] and founded the business in 2003.

In 2004, Plenty of Fish became a full-time money making business for Markus.[8] He ran the site independently until 2008, when he began hiring other employees at his new Vancouver headquarters. In 2009, Plenty of Fish also launched a contest with Lady Gaga allowing single members to go together and meet the singer during The Fame Ball Tour.[9]

The website for Plenty of Fish appeared in several music videos in 2010: in Lady Gaga's "Telephone", Natasha Bedingfield's "Touch", Ke$ha's "We R Who We R", Flo Rida and Akon's "Available", Jason Derulo's "Ridin' Solo",[10] and 3OH!3's "Double Vision". In 2011, it appeared in Britney Spears's music video for "Hold It Against Me". Many of these appearances are undisclosed paid product placements[11][12] which have been met with highly negative reviews.[13][14]

In 2010, Plenty of Fish launched mobile apps for iPhone and Android. A few years later, it was made available for both the iPad and Windows phone.[15][16] In a June 2014 interview, Frind attributed 85% of all Plenty of Fish traffic to mobile with the number growing weekly.[17]

On January 21, 2011, it was discovered that the Plenty of Fish website had been hacked which exposed the personal and password information on nearly 30 million user accounts.[18] Since the alleged hacking incident, Frind alleges he has identified persons he believes are responsible for the hacking, and alleges he is threatening legal action in response to the widespread negative media exposure. At the time this received global media exposure and security experts blamed Plenty of Fish for the security and privacy lapse specifically for keeping users' passwords unsecured.[18][19]

On February 28, 2012, the parents of US Army Lieutenant Peter Burks sued Plenty of Fish. The parents' lawsuit alleges photos of their son, who was killed in Iraq in 2007, were used without permission. The parents were seeking compensatory and punitive damages. Paul Bloudoff, the firm's legal affairs manager responded by saying "Lt. Burks’ image was never used by POF.com in any way, shape or form, [a] third-party advertiser, with no affiliation to Plenty of Fish, ran an ad promoting another dating site using Lt. Burks’ picture, and one of the places this advertiser ran this ad happened to be our site."[20]

In an August 2012 interview, Markus Frind stated that based on the millions of relationships and marriages Plenty of Fish has created over the past several years, it is estimated that over one million babies have been born as a result of the website.[21]

On May 20, 2013, Frind implemented several changes to the website with the stated goal of focusing on "meaningful relationships". Among these changes were the removal of the "intimate encounters" option.[22] A related eliminated feature was the option to contact clients of age differences greater than "Markus", presumably Frind, found tasteful. Although the Plenty of Fish site and its "matching" criteria continue to match couples with age differences greater than the 14-year guideline, attempts to contact these "matches" resulted in an inbox message from Markus stating, among other things, "[t]here is no reason for a 50 year old man to contact a 18 year old woman."[23] Another restriction implemented in the updates is that male users could no longer attach images to messages.[24] Additionally, the site automatically blocks messages from male users containing certain words while showing such messages as being sent.[25]

The image sending restriction was apparently reversed after Plenty of Fish was acquired by Match Group (but not "quick messages" directly from the match's profile page) and members outside of the 14-year age limit no longer appear as matches or in searches. Attempting to contact members outside of the 14-year limit now displays a page stating the user does not meet the member's contact criteria (even when untrue) and suggests several matches to contact instead of sending a message to the user's inbox.

On July 14, 2015, Plenty of Fish was sold for $575 million to Match Group (owner of Match.com, OkCupid, Tinder and Hinge, based in Dallas, Texas).[26] The headquarters remain in Vancouver and have recently been expanded.[27]

In March 2020, Plenty of Fish (now owned by Match Group) launched a livestream feature after a partnership to interact with users from other apps MeetMe and Skout (both owned by The Meet Group) and Zoosk (owned by Spark Networks SE).[28][29]

Staff[edit]

The site relied on volunteers to monitor forums and sort through the 50,000 new photos that, at most come in each day.[30] By 2019, Plenty of Fish employed over 100 people, including programmers, marketing managers, product managers, designers and customer success representatives.[31]

Technical details[edit]

Plenty of Fish uses a Microsoft-based platform for itself, including IIS, ASP.NET, and Microsoft SQL.[32][33]

Statistics[edit]

  • Registered users: 100,000,000 (March 2015)[1]
  • Dating site ranking in the UK: 1 (Comscore May 2011)[34]
  • Dating site ranking Worldwide: 1 (Hitwise, August 2011)[35]
  • U.S. site by market share: 1, with 18.57% of the market (Hitwise, August 2012)[36]
  • Number of page views a month: 2 Billion (April 2012)[37]
  • Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Plenty of Fish reported a 0.7% increase in monthly active users in the final quarter of 2020.[38]

Issues[edit]

In 2015, users were targeted by cyberattacks via a malicious adlink.[39][40]

In 2015 Plenty of Fish Media Inc. was fined $48,000 for alleged violation of Canada's anti-spam law.[41][42]

In December 2019, Plenty of Fish pushed out a fix for its app after a security researcher found it was leaking information that users had set as private on their profiles, including hidden names and postal codes.[43]

But he already took me by the back of the head and tilted my head to his penis, which rose more and more. Completely broken, I opened my mouth and took the fourth member of this evening - more than in my entire previous. Life.

Of.fish plenty

I gasped in pain, and he just forced me to open my mouth and spat there, reminding me of my place. I am a whore. And my body is his toy, with which he does whatever comes into his head.

He unfolded the pages, and then, without looking up, read what he had written with pleasure and slight amazement. These, apparently, were sheets torn from the girl's personal diary. The described one day struck with such a frank text that, in all likelihood, the writer herself decided to tear this day out of her life, but.

Did not dare to destroy it, hiding it in a secret place.

Now discussing:

After half an hour, she came out completely naked and spun around me. I was horny the way I was not during sex with her. She did a full hair removal around her neat pussy. A smooth, shiny bud with neatly arranged petals and a narrow longitudinal line looked at me. I noted the beautiful manicure and pedicure.
