Economists Soohyung Lee and Muriel Niederle tried to help users be more credible in how much they were interested in a person on a Korean dating site.The site ran a special event over a nine-day period that was sort of a cross between online dating and speed dating. Over a five-day proposal period, they could show up to 10 people on the site that they were interested in a date with them.
The experiment worked, in that invitations sent with virtual roses were more likely to turn into a date. I’ve heard people in both the online dating industry and the online job board industries give two answers to this.Dating sites (and, for that matter, other online markets) are largely a fixed cost business.A company has to design the site, the user interface, and the matching algorithm.In addition, during that period, some participants could offer a “virtual rose” along with two of their date requests.This, in effect, told the recipient that he or she was among the highest choices of the person offering the rose.Perhaps cultural differences made it harder to break down that mindset in some countries, forcing websites to work harder on verification and building trust with their clients.
Second, Jiayuan may have implemented their verification system simply due to the bad luck of a few scandals attached to their site.
Though a site needs to add more servers as it grows, scaling is a relatively easy and low cost proposition if customers start arriving in large numbers.
But verifying individual users’ height, income, education, and the like has to be done customer-by-customer.
The virtual roses, inspired by Michael Spence’s Nobel-Prize winning idea of “signaling,” allowed people to show they really wanted a date because it was costly to send one.
That is, if you sent a rose to one person, you could not send it to someone else.
Verification kills the scalability of a dating site.
