People like posting about relationship tips, love, and other non-dating related issues such as movies, music, gaming, etc.
Members' compatibility rate is tested based on the "POF Chemistry Predictor" which measures self-confidence, family orientation, self-control, social dependency, and easygoingness.
It indicates the length of the member's longest relationship to give out clues as to your compatibility as a potential couple.
Members mostly access their accounts through the POF app.
About 75% of the time, the POF is accessed using a mobile phone.
We only struggled with the app when we tried to deactivate our account.
We were able to hide our account through the app, but we had to log in to the desktop version to deactivate or delete our account.
One cool feature of communication in POF is that you can use your phone’s microphone to record a voice message and send to another user.
Usually, with online dating, you don’t get to hear another person’s voice until you are feeling comfortable enough with exchanging phone numbers, so this is a great way to get to know someone safely.
The match results for each member is promising because of these well-detailed questions. It is easy to know what type of relationship other members are looking for.
With easy to access information, you can use tidbits other members have shared on their profiles as ice-breakers and conversation starters.
Sending images to another user through private messaging is exclusive for female members.
Male members were banned from using the said feature due to nudity.
During registration, POF will ask about the activities you like doing, the friends you have, and your hobbies.
