I had visited internet dating conference held in Amsterdam in the beginning of the week. I had a opportunity to speak there about mobile technology (thanks Marc).
Topic of my presentation was Tips for coding a mobile dating site and my presentation was mostly about what all different thinks you have to have in mind when creating mobile site [download pdf]. In the beginning of my presentation I was speaking a little bit about mobile business and difference between mobile users and web users behavior. I will try to write a longer post about this later.
The event was a great experience for me and I had a chance to speak with major European dating sites owners. Its really surprising they don't have clear mobile strategy for their sites. It looks like mobile waters are not quite new to them, but they really don't know how to handle it. Their proven business model where man pay using a credit card for a month subscription is not very good for mobiles, but it looks like they are not willing to change it.
