Match.com Cloned HowAboutWe, So We’re Giving Match Users 3 Months Free. Because We’re Better.by HowAboutWe on January 19, 2011
Match.com totally copped our style. Last week they launched a new feature called DateSpark. It’s basically a HowAboutWe clone. David Evans from OnlineDating Insider had this to say: “DateSpark is heavily inspired by HowAboutWe. In fact its pretty much a direct copy of what I consider to be 2010 hottest dating startup.”
While we’re flattered by Match’s imitation of us, we’re not worried. It’s kind of like, “C’mon guys….it’s still just Match.”
We’re so confident that our site is superior that we’re offering all Match.com subscribers 3 months free on HowAboutWe. Just email proof of your subscription — like a receipt or confirmation email — to BetterDates@howaboutwe.com and tell us what your HowAboutWe username is.
Take a look at these screenshots and see for yourselves (and while you’re at it, check out our first press release!).
