How did Plenty of Fish make money?
In achieving its giant user numbers, POF has one significant advantage over its rivals - it is free to join, and its basic functions are free to use. Instead of making most of its money from subscription fees, like its largest rivals, the company focuses on raising funds by carrying adverts on its site.
Is Plenty of Fish still around?
Founded in 2003, POF (previously known as Plenty of Fish or PlentyofFish) is one of the pioneer dating sites that is still popular today. It claims to be the worlds largest dating site, with over 90 million registered users globally.
