Ever wondered what it would be like to find matches based on your preferences - using an in-depth system like Google Knowledge? Loveflutter is a new online dating site that has harnessed that power to create a new matching system for singles.
According to website Mashable, Google's Knowledge Graph is the key behind Loveflutter's new dating service. The goal of the service is to bring like-minded people together so you won't have those awkward moments on first dates when you find you have nothing to talk about. Loveflutter creates a real-time interest graph based on your interests (pulled from Facebook or entered manually) and matches you with others based on correlating keywords. For example, if you like horror flicks it will match you with people who enjoyed the Saw movies. The service also utilizes Foursquare to suggest places to meet up.
It's format is similar to How About We? in that it's your interests that drive the matching process.
Another interesting feature of Loveflutter is its ability to match people based on their "hangout" places, rather than a radius around a home address. Maybe you'd rather meet someone who goes to the same neighborhoods or restaurants that you do on the weekend (which aren't necessarily where you live). In L.A. this is especially appealing because often we hang out in places close to work or school - where we spend the most time and where our friends tend to be, rather than near our homes which might not be in the most exciting neighborhoods.
The service is free, but like with many online dating sites it's important to understand what that actually means. You can sign up and browse for free, but if you want to communicate with other members then you do have to pay. They offer different rates depending on how you want to use the site.
Loveflutter is still in beta mode, and the company is currently working on a mobile dating app.
