"With the Premium membership, CMB is aiming to eliminate ghosting, or quietly disappearing from a conversation with someone you met on a dating site or app. The biggest feature of CMB’s premium tier is Activity Reports, which show stats on a user’s profile about percentage of times they engage in chats with connections, percentage of the time they send the first message, whether or not they’ve been active in the last 72 hours, and a marker for how long it usually takes that person to respond to messages. Premium members will also see read receipts for messages they’ve sent, as well as 6,000 ‘Beans’ to spend on other CMB paid features. These include Open Sesame (unlocking mutual friends you have with your match), A/B testing of your profile photo, among other virtual purchases." #online_dating #ghosting #freemium #news #unique_features #data_driven #SaaS #pub

App-based dating service Coffee Meets Bagel has raised roughly $7 million in Series B funding, per an SEC filing. The funding values the San Francisco-based startup at about $82 million, according to a PitchBook estimate. " --- So are they worth $89M post-value? "French startup Happn has raised about $66 million from Raine Ventures, DN Capital and more. Hinge, which many accused Facebook of copying to build out its new dating feature, has pulled in roughly $26 million and was most recently valued at an estimated $75.5 million. Clover has about $11 million in VC backing and The League has raised about $3 million." --- "The business of romantic relationships has proven to be a lucrative one. Match Group, which owns a portfolio of dating services including Tinder, beat analyst estimates with revenue of about $379 million in 4Q 2017, per Reuters. Tinder's success contributed to the better-than-expected figure. The app, which is valued at an estimated $3 billion, added 1.5 million paid subscribers in 2017 and now has some 3 million paying users, also per Reuters." #online_dating #funding #coffee_meets_bagel #mobile_apps #startups #dating_industry #match_group #revenue #money #tinder #pub
