Match.com by christina romanenko

Match.com is an online dating service with web sites serving 25 countries in more than eight languages. Its headquarters are in Dallas, Texas. The company has offices in Dallas, West Hollywood, San Francisco, Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, and Beijing. Match.com is owned by IAC.

In 2002 and early 2003, Match.com's then CEO, Tim Sullivan, tried to expand Match.com reach by expanding into the local dating scene with a service called MatchLive. Daters would meet in a public location sponsored by Match.com. People would be involved in social activities and a form of speed dating together. The idea was scrapped by the parent company. Shortly afterwards, IAC fired Tim Sullivan as acting CEO, and laid off 30 people in the Dallas office involved with the MatchLive brand.[15] The company stated that it planned to refocus its operation moving forward on on-line dating instead of hosting singles and speed-dating events.

In May 2012, Match.com announced Stir, events by Match.com. The new service offers hundreds of local events each month for Match.com members to attend.

MatchTravel was an attempt about the same time as the MatchLive brand to offer discounts via the then sister company Expedia, Inc. to daters meeting on Match.com. The service was rescinded shortly afterward.

none of my family really used match.com but I chose it because it impacts human society.

Match.com is a dating website that UNSOCIAL people use to find love. Match.com has really impacted human society because there are ALOT of people in this world who are unsocial and single so this really makes it easier for them to find 'the one'.

The more Matches the more marriage. The more Marriage the more babies. The more babies the more population. so match.com really helps.

Match.com was founded by Gary Kremen, Fran Maier, and Peng T. Ong in 1993. It was started as a proof-of-concept for Electric Classifieds[3] which aimed to provide classified advertising systems for newspapers. Early on, Kremen was assisted by Peng T. Ong, who helped in the design of the initial system, and Simon Glinsky, who helped in the development of one of the first Internet business plans for Match.com and also provided management and marketing expertise. The initial business scope developed by this team included a subscription model, now common among personals services, and inclusion of diverse communities with high first trial and market leaders status, including women, technology professionals and the Gay and Lesbian community. Fran Maier joined in late 1994 to lead the Match.com business unit where she significantly bolstered the strategy to make Match.com friendly and accessible to women (the men would then follow).[4]
