Even naked pics boosted right off their blinged out little pink cellphones!
Things happened pretty quickly, but they appeared to be on the same page.
Propelled by explosive broadband growth and soaring mobile numbers, our transition to the digital world has been rapid and innovative.
Indeed many of us are probably not even aware of how important a role these technologies already play.
They’d even met each other’s friends and planned a day trip out of the city together the next day.
They’d started off texting and emailing as they got to know one another. Although they didn't speak of being exclusive, it felt and seemed that way to Brian. They texted each other when they got home and talked about the next time they were to get together.
In our increasingly digital world filled with constant connectivity and instant gratification, it’s no surprise that love is a big business and online dating entrepreneurs are reaping the benefits. The industry generates about billion in revenue each year and has steadily grown since its inception in 1995. At the time, online dating revolved mostly around the ability to search and filter through other singles online by their location, age, eye color, and much more. Instead of focusing on trial-and-error searches, they used a proprietary algorithm to find compatible matches for their users.
The rapid growth of online dating is as much about money as it is about love. According to the device security firm, Iovation, 39% of online dating now happens through mobile apps and around half of all singles in the United States currently use or have used online dating sites or apps at least once.
For many users, these mobile apps have helped remove the stigma of online dating by pulling into the mainstream.
The Pew Research Center conducted a study that found that 59% of respondents considered online dating a good way to meet people, while 21% said it was only for the desperate.
