“If they’ve already been using Facebook and feel comfortable with the format, this will be an easy transition for someone reentering the dating market.” This is an increasingly lucrative market.

Location-based apps have exploded in popularity over the last 10 years. A decade ago, many sites were free or had minimal fees of around $20 a month.

It’s not clear, however, whether Facebook will charge for the dating service and, if so, how much. (charged $9.95 per month when it launched in 1995.) Today, dating sites can charge between $10 and $60 per month, depending on the length of the subscription.

Not surprisingly, POF has largely remained the hotbed of shirtless bathroom selfies..spelling atrocities, and baby-mommas that we recall from our days as actual card-carrying members.

True Confession: One of The Dating Gurus joined the site after her best friend's 20 year-old daughter (should have been the tip-off) lauded the free site, and urged her to try it.

He will then end by saying, “Hopefully I haven’t bored you!

” To his credit, in response to criticism that POF is "the trailer park of the online dating world," founder Markus Frind sent out an unusual e-mail to all members in 2013, stating that the following changes would be made, in part: The Dating Gurus appreciates Frind's attempts to clean up this wasteland, but we don't think that even this will be enough.

“This is going to be for building real, long-term relationships, not just hook-ups.” The company is entering a crowded space: The dating industry is worth around billion, with revenue split between advertising and subscription services, up revenue up around 5% per year, according to a report by research firm IBISWorld. But it has one big advantage: More than 2 billion members around the world.

As dating pools go, they don’t get much bigger than that.

Yes, POF can be a skanky, depressing place--the ghetto of the online dating world. Well, it does help to have the money hurdle to keep out the riff-raff. Frind should start putting in a few 9-to-5 days on his site.

But we think it's also because the profile-writing requirements are so low. For our critque on a male POF profile, check this out!

And no, we're not talking race, religion, or gender.
