It is supported by advertisements, by paying users who do not see ads, and by selling user data for data mining.Ok Cupid co-founder Christian Rudder stated in 2009 that the male Ok Cupid users who were rated most physically attractive by female Ok Cupid users received 11 times as many messages as the lowest-rated male users did, the medium-rated male users received about four times as many messages, and the one-third of female users who were rated most physically attractive by the male users received about two-thirds of all messages sent by male users.Additionally, a study published in the August 2018 edition of Science Advances by researchers at the University of Michigan and the Santa Fe Institute found that users of an unnamed, popular, and free online dating service in New York City, Boston, Chicago, and Seattle typically pursued potential partners ranked on average 25 percent more desirable than they were (as measured by the Page Rank algorithm).In a separate A/B test, Ok Cupid used a placebo number instead of users' true match percentage.The results suggested that doing this actually caused people, who were "bad matches" under the original algorithm, to actually like each other: "When we tell people they are a good match, they act as if they are." The revelation that Ok Cupid conducted these experiments on users led to much criticism.
