And if we’re focused on helping people build meaningful relationships then this is perhaps the most meaningful one of all.” There hasn’t been too much written about how e Harmony’s algorithm works, but in a lecture in May 2017 (two months before officially leaving e Harmony), Carter opened up about it to describe it a little.It turns out that while there may be a lot of questions that get asked of a user’s preferences, ultimately e Harmony threw out everything except for the most extreme likes or dislikes in order to avoid creating what Carter refers to as “a universe of one.” This is an interesting idea when you apply it to Facebook, and you can see what the attraction might be for a data scientist in wanting to use the platform to build a dating service.“Freedom on the Net is an indispensable resource for anyone who cares about freedom in the digital age.The report provides excellent analysis of existing restrictions on speech online, and it highlights the emerging threats that we'll be fighting in the months and years to come.” Ross La Jeunesse, Global Head of Free Expression and International Relations, Google As we increasingly rely on the internet, it is important that the rights we enjoy offline are also protected online.Along with Steve Carter, we’ve been trying to figure out whether Facebook has been hiring other people to build a relationships team that it could task with building out dating and other products.It turns out that there is definitely some crossover of employees who have worked at various dating sites over the last several years, who are now at Facebook — but most likely, this is mostly a product of the general churn that you get in the tech world, where people are often jumping from one job to another. Just this month, Facebook happened to hire Badoo’s head of mobile engineering, who appears to be based out of London.Dr Steve Carter, a data scientist who helped design and build the psychometric and relationship models that became the basis of e Harmony — the dating site where he was a founding member and worked for nearly 20 years — is working at the social network, out of its offices in Los Angeles.
The project builds the capacity of its network of researchers—in-country bloggers, academics, journalists, and tech experts chosen for their promise and expertise—by providing the analytical tools to serve as the future generation of internet freedom defenders around the world.(That’s to say nothing of the fact that Facebook sort of started as a dating site of sorts, where people prominently displayed their relationship statuses on their profile pages, popularizing “it’s complicated” as the short story for all of love’s actual complications.) As we noted yesterday, when Facebook launches its service, it wants to make it as noninvasive as possible. And that profile won’t be visible to your friends; only to others who have also opted in, and only if they fit your criteria and match your profile, and only if they are not already your friends and connections on the network.Applying Carter’s concept of matching data between users on e Harmony, Facebook already has a huge trove of information about you, based on what you post and like and share.This sales director for “e-commerce and dating” started his new role in January 2018, working out of Paris (so I guess there is already some early considering for how to build this as a business too).There are two recent hires from Tinder, one in Los Angeles and one in Menlo Park.
