POF Dating Site has become more popular over the years. With the added features, it has become more exciting and inviting. Some are exclusive to POF, while others seem to be inspired by other dating sites.
POF's chemistry predictor helps narrow down matches and gives users better dating filter criteria. This feature includes different kinds of assessments such as personality and sex tests.
A matchmaking feature that provides compatible profile matches.
It includes a list (ranked by compatibility) of all the people that you had contact with for the past 30 days. Some members were reported to end up being in a relationship after one of them was included on the other's Top Prospects list.
Similar to many other apps that focus on finding someone close to your location, POF has a nearby function that ranks users based on how far away they are. It uses the information on the members' mobile phone location services.
It lets you browse the local members who are game for a meetup.
This feature is similar to the swipe right or left method of viewing profiles made famous by Tinder. You are presented with profile pictures of other users and asked to tick "Yes" if you want to meet them or "No" if you don't. If you both say "Yes," you become a mutual match and can start chatting.
Automated Decision Making and Profiling
Only computers and algorithms are involved in the decision-making process. There is no human involvement to protect every user's privacy.
These invisible features help in improving the chances of the members to find and build meaningful connections.
This feature lets the other person know how much a member is into him/her. Based on data, chances of finding a match increase up to more than 50% if Super Yes is used. You can find this feature on "Meet Me."
Send Priority Message
When sending messages, you will see a box where you can choose to turn on or off the Send Priority Message Feature. If you turn it on, your message will be at the top of the receiver's inbox. However, this feature may only be used by premium members.
You can also find this feature in "Meet Me." This feature highlights a member's profile so more users can see it. You can use tokens to be the catch of the day.
It acts as a profile booster. Use a "Super Yes," send priority messages, and highlight yourself by being on the "Today's Catch" list, with the use of tokens.
You can purchase 10, 5 or 1 token at a time which expires after six months. Members mentioned on the forum that there's a promo where you can buy the tokens up to 90% off.
Due to the anxiety caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, POF, in partnership with Shine started offering free access to more than 800 materials like guides for meditation, calming and soothing sounds, bedtime stories (not just for kids), exercises for writing journal entries, mood tracker, and reflection space.
Two new meditations for dating were developed namely "Navigate Dating During COVID" and "Balance Dating While Busy." It is believed that Shine's services can help improve the state of minds, especially in the dating arena which greatly suffered since the start of the lockdowns.
If you are a member of Plenty of Fish, you'll have an access to Shine's premium services. And for those who are not familiar with Shine, it is one of the top self-care app available on the market.
