The amount of information provided to daters nowadays is enhanced by the modern technology and social media platforms that work alongside it.
With the huge advancements in technology, intricate algorithms have been put in place helping people find better matches online based on their preferences, likes, dislikes and hobbies.
With the wide use of social networking platforms, there is no shortage of personal information up for grabs, and this is the very pool that mobile dating apps tap into.
Sites range from dating for those who are mentally ill, those with HIV, or with similar physical or mental disabilities.
There are dating sites for dancers, literature lovers, food junkies, pet owners, science fiction enthusiasts, astrology lovers and believers and even hikers.
These days, people are checking their dating accounts almost as much as their social networking accounts. On the contrary, it’s common practice that friends will share chat print screens of their dating shenanigans with their friends.
The use of location identification apps are another clear sign of how out-in-the-open online dating has become as it forces the merging between online and offline dating.
