Ok Cupid was listed in Time magazine's 2007 Top 10 dating websites. Ok Cupid's founders (Chris Coyne, Christian Rudder, Sam Yagan, and Max Krohn) were students at Harvard University when they gained recognition for their creation of The Spark and, later, Spark Notes.
The popularity of Spark Match took off and it was launched as its own site, later renamed Ok Cupid.
In 2001, they sold Spark Notes to Barnes & Noble, and began work on Ok Cupid.
