About The Grade
The Grade is an entertaining, patent-pending, female-friendly mobile dating application, owned by publicly traded Snap Interactive, Inc., (Ticker: STVI). The Grade holds users accountable for their behavior by using a proprietary algorithm that assigns letter grades to users ranging from "A+" to "F" based profile quality, responsiveness, and peer-reviews generated from the opinions received from other users. With The Grade, our goal is #NoMoreCreeps. Swipe stress-free without worry of unrequited communication, hostile messaging and inappropriate photos.
Users with a grade of "D" or "F" receive a warning and instructions on how to improve their grade, while users who maintain an "F" grade are expelled. Expelled users have the ability to "appeal" the decision by providing compelling reasons why they should be allowed back; however, re-entry is not guaranteed. By expelling low-quality users who receive an "F" grade, The Grade aims to create a community of high-quality users who are desirable, articulate and responsive.
The core concept of The Grade, in bringing accountability to dating, was informed by market research that revealed a deep dissatisfaction amongst singles of current popular mobile dating offerings. A recurring theme, particularly from women using mobile apps, was that they were unhappy with the quantity of low-quality daters and the frequency of inappropriate, hostile, and sexually suggestive messages. The results of a survey of 1,000 mobile daters showed that 73% of women who use mobile dating apps said they have received a sexually suggestive photo, 77% have been asked to send an inappropriate photo, and 90% of women have received sexually suggestive messages.
