THE WASHINGTON TIMES COMMUNITIES - Sep 6 - Zoosk taps into social networking, our most natural form of online interaction and allows people to communicate when and how they would like. Shayan Zadeh, co-founder and co-CEO of Zoosk, talks about the future of online dating.
Q: How do you stay competitive?
A: We initially launched Zoosk on the Facebook platform in 2007. We created a truly “social” online dating service. In April, we launched Couple Profiles, which gives couples a dedicated place to celebrate their relationship online.
Q: What is the future of online dating?
A: The industry is becoming increasingly more social. We really see social networking for couples as being the next evolution of modern romance.
Q: How do you see this translating to mobile?
A: Today, you need to offer products and services that accommodate all phone/service providers to ensure that you are not left out. Zoosk offers mobile services for our Personal’s application, as well as Couple Profiles.
Q: What's next for Zoosk?
A: We will continue to expand our services as a romantic social network. We are in the process of developing new features to enrich our Couple Profiles offering, which we will announce over the course of the next year.
