Plenty of Fish (pof.com) is an online dating service that was launched in 2003 and has grown, now offering access to the service via mobile apps and tablet apps. Originally monitored by volunteers, the company grew and – in 2015 – was purchased by Match Group for $575 million. Frind told Business Insider the success of PoF was a surprising accident and he had only initially built the site to expand upon his resume. However, within a couple of days of building the site, members began signing up in the hopes of meeting their soulmates.
The basic service is free and allows members to send messages, photos and videos to each other, although only females are permitted to send private images. Members can upgrade to the premium service to access additional services.
