Technology and dating statistics
Photo: Steve Keys Email, Twitter, Facebook, My Space, You Tube, Delicious, Digg, Linked In, blogs (of course), and scores of others—all part of the new and wonderful ways we can now connect with one another electronically, each with its own culture and unique set of rules.In one sense, the planet has never been more interconnected.I was watching this video in which a cross section of people, were asked to use Tinder to find people they would go on a date with.
We may feel we're connecting effectively with others via the Internet, but too much electronic-relating paradoxically engenders a sense of social isolation.
The adoption of technology has changed the way we connect and converse with others in our society and dating is no exception.
The prevalence of smart phones mean we are always contactable, social media allows others to get to know us before we have even met, and dating apps give us an abundance of choice in a suitable partner or partners.
Along with mobile phones, Americans own a range of other information devices. As the adoption of traditional broadband service has slowed in recent years, a growing share of Americans now use smartphones as their primary means of online access at home.
Today just over one-in-ten American adults are “smartphone-only” internet users – meaning they own a smartphone, but do not have traditional home broadband service.
