Effects internet dating society
I think of online dating sites as separate ponds and each separate pond is a different dating site.
It is a large grouping of people looking for relatively the same thing, a romantic relationship, or sometimes just a sexual or nonsexual relationship, regardless they are all looking for relationships whatever kind it may be.
In response to the rise of online dating, economists Josué Ortega and Philipp Hergovich recently set out to examine its effects on society as reflected in the data on how our marriages and relationships are forming.
I started reading about it, and was really surprised to find it’s very popular in the UK and US, because there’s this sense that Tinder and other platforms are just for hookups," Ortega said."When I came across the statistic that one third of marriages start online, and 70% of gay relationships, I was shocked," he said.
In the weeks since, the work has been gaining attention around the world, and brought the theoretical researchers into the spotlight.
"And the more I talked to people, the more I heard that they'd met their partners on Tinder and other sites." After reviewing data on how various kinds of relationships were forming in the wake on online dating, Ortega said, "It seemed like it was changing not just the number of interracial marriages, but also how we meet our spouses, and having other big consequences." So Ortega, an economics lecturer at the University of Essex, and Hergovich, who's pursuing a Ph D in economics at the University of Vienna, decided to test their hypotheses on how the internet has changed modern dating by crunching the numbers.
To investigate the effects of online dating over time, they developed a theoretical framework and mathematical models which harnessed previous such exercises, decades' worth of data, and good old game-theoretic stability.
First and foremost social media, especially the Internet, is about people because people support, fund, and perpetuate the Internet and its mind-blowing omnipresence.
In the Journal of Computer-mediated Communication there was a case study that was done, its purpose was to study and note the process of self-presentation on dating sites.
