Accessing attractiveness in online dating profiles
One thing is clear: Ok Cupid doesn’t support HTTPS, a standard web encryption that ensures that information is sent and received in an encrypted form (so it looks like random characters) rather than plain text.The lack of HTTPS means that anyone on your wireless network can potentially read any Ok Cupid email, page view, chat message, search entry, profile info, clicked link, and even answers to your hidden questions.On the other hand, singles in Boston may have a hard time finding their matches.Female residents are Cultured Urbanites, but most men are partying Weekend Warriors.The results were released as a new research study called Plenty Of Personality.The research identified the top 20 personality archetypes, based on corresponding interests, of singles in 11 major American cities.
But to connect with other members, you also have to share with Ok Cupid.
Occasionally you may connect with something, but mostly it's a lot of boring clichés (“I like traveling and hanging out with my friends”).
All most of us use the interests section for is scanning for red flags and looking for microscopic signs of compatibility.
Because many Ok Cupid users express their sexual orientation, religious and political beliefs, drug use, and other highly personal info on the site, a data breach could be disastrous.
Using our Do Not Track Plus browser privacy tool, we found that Ok Cupid used nine different tracking companies and ad networks to obtain information about its visitors.
Advertisers can compile information about whether you or anyone else who’s using your computer saw their ads and clicked them.
