Userplane aquired by AOL.

Lots of comments out there on this acquisition.    Paidcontent.org  says the acquisition was in the 30-40 million range.   David evans says they have about a million a year in revenue.  Split between dating sites and social networking sites.  Userplane is my biggest fixed expense at over $100,000/year,  they are probably the only third party site that could accurately/indepently verify just how large Plentyoffish.com really is.

Techcrunch talks about the story to and has a bunch of comments,  they speculate what will happen and how it will fit into AOL’s long term strategies.   I am a little concerned as well AOL has a history of buying things and then letting them die off slowly.

Congrats to the  Userplane team,   definately a nice little pot of gold to take home and retire on!
