From the figures above it’s clear to see that more people are engaged on the Facebook page of eHarmony. The only factor that is in favor of OkCupid on Facebook is the number of comments their posts receive, however this factor is depended pretty much on content quality (as will be analyzed next).

Content Quality

When it comes to content we checked for quality and type of content. Content quality referring to relevance of content and added value of content while type of content refers to the frequency and use of written content, images and photos, diagrams, and videos.

A more detailed look at the figures above shows that eHarmony Facebook’s content delivers:

  • Images and photos with uplifting and positive slogans, as well as success stories images.
  • Personal testimonials of users.
  • Dating advice and tips in its post content.
  • eHarmony product explanatory information.
  • Podcasts answering personal questions.
  • And relationship advice.

While OkCupid’s Facebook content delivers:

  • Company media appearances.
  • Product explanatory information.
  • Funny images and photos.
  • Historical courtship info.
  • Sexual opinions change in history.
  • Sports and dating surveys.

Still, the main difference derived from the table above is in the frequency of updated content. eHarmony has got a live and kicking Facebook community with posts every day, while OkCupid has got a dormant Facebook social community with very few content updates every month.

Also, the content relevancy of eHarmony is much higher than that of OkCupid’s. It deals with the core of dating and provides its users with more focused content which they can actually use.

Note – this might also be the reason why comments on OkCupid’s Facebook are higher, since less relevant content sometimes draws a lot of spam replies.

Conclusion

The clear winner here is eHarmony Facebook. It is home to an active social dating community which is engaging and likes the value which the online dating service adds to the app and site with its Facebook page.

On the other hand is OkCupid Facebook which is dormant. It is really such a shame because the site and app have so much to offer.
