The site has appeared in numerous music videos such as Lady Gaga’s “Telephone,” Jason Derulo’s “Ridin’ Solo,” and Britney Spears’ “Hold It Against Me.” In 2015, POF joined the likes of Ok Cupid and Tinder when it was bought by The Match Group.
An upgraded membership removes all ads and allows you to view extended profiles, find out if someone read or deleted your message, get priority placement on Meet Me and in search results, and see who said “Yes” to you.Members' compatibility rate is tested based on the "POF Chemistry Predictor" which measures self-confidence, family orientation, self-control, social dependency, and easygoingness.The data is collected from the personality test during registration. It works just like text messaging where you can type free texts back and forth with other users.Finally, you can write a headline, upload photos, and fill out your About Me, Interests, and First Date Idea sections.For finding matches, POF has basic (e.g., filter by city) and advanced (e.g., filter by income) search options, the Meet Me feature to quickly say “Yes,” “Maybe,” or “No” to members, and Ultra Match, which shows you a list of those who are most compatible.
