I believe most of their income comes from pornographic portions that they offer / affiliate programs (but I’d imagine the “adult personals” portion is what draws its audience).
Once in the early day’s, my friend’s manager (the company’s founder) had been asked by a former classmate if he could host a site for his start-up in exchange for stock options. The manager refused. That classmate’s name was. Jerry Yang.
2) AFF’s founders could have already been hosting sites before founding AFF (indeed, it would logically follow that he’d have experience running a site before launching a successful company).
Conru is registered wih Verisign and on 03-NOV-94 (Andrew Conru is the founder of AFF and you can see the FFN address and name when doing ‘whois conru’). Seems like it’s at least plausible (Stanford is a small place).
Most writing teachers would scream if the student wrote this and stopped
I think that perhaps a large part of the “ew” factor in this (and many other) threads come from the idea that enough money to warrant an IPO can come from such ‘seedy’ business as facilitating one-night stands, but in my mind it is quite questionable whether the vast majority of the income comes from the one-night-stand part of their business.
In fact, I am willing to bet that it is not. It seems plausible to me that the number of people who simply are not meeting a partner that meets their criteria is on par with the number of people who require one night stands.
So they’re only going to take money from new “investors” to pay off the old? Sounds like another Ponzi scheme to me.
i am still of the opinion that a majority of the funds in the hedge markets had cash conserved during the down turn. if this goes well, then it will show that there is money out there.
on another note, in down times, entertainment seems to do better and this might be the only time that an adult website could grab the attention of investors.
Good writers explain their ideas well. One way they explain their ideas is to include examples which make the writer’s thoughts much more concrete, practical, and comprehensible to the reader. Without good examples, the reader is left with just theories that are too difficult to use and apply. Look at the following paragraph:
It is apparent that when a person desires to learn a second language, he must study and use that language outside of the formal classroom setting. If he does not use his new mode of communication, he will never truly progress to a proficient level. He must seek as many opportunities as possible to employ that new language in “real” situations. There are many things a student can do to supplement his learning and second language acquisition.
Over there, you will see that the same company runs a number of age/gender/ethnicity specific networks (GayFF, AsianFF) and even a Christian dating site called “BigChurch” Also, the nerve personals section is run by fastcupid, which is also owned by FFN
|This book has received lots of praise from readers. Here is one (taken from Amazon’s Web site): “I read the book in just a few days, and it has answered writing questions that have plagued me (consciously and unconsciously) for as long as I can remember. Reading this book brought me a sense of relief and calm, as I no longer felt that grammar was a mysterious tune that only a few were fortunate enough to hear.” Click here for more information.|
