eHarmony: More than 600,000 Marriages, New Job Matching Service
Santa Monica-based online matchmaking site eHarmony said Tuesday that it now has more than 600,000 marriages to its credit, with approximately one in seven people in America having subscribed to the service at one point or another. eHarmony also said it will be releasing its job matching service, Elevated Careers, in Q4. The company--which detailed its track record on its fourteenth anniversary--says in the last two years since Dr. Neil Clark Warren returned that it has "undergone a transformation". eHarmony has been in the midst of revamping its service to address the mobile, smartphone generation -- making its website more contemporary, and adding mobile, smartphone-centric access to its services. However, the company's focus on matching people who are well suited to each other is an interesting contrast to the popular "swipe right for a hookup" apps like Tinder.
