ABC News Nightline Love in the Twenty-First Century

ABC News Nightline Love in the Twenty-First Century

Used to be family and friends were the entree to meeting new people and perhaps even your future spouse. Nowadays your partner in life is just as likely to be a mouse-click away!

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. In Regency England, friends and family would make sure that important information about eligibility was passed on to appropriate suitors, with the hope that it would end in marriage. In the 21st century, all Mr. Darcy and Miss Bennett would have to do is get online, fill in some pertinent information about their personalities and through the magic of ones and zeroes be brought together via cyberspace! Is that any less romantic than having your aunt or mother finding the right guy for you? ABC News looks at the booming business of Internet dating. Some 40 million people a month visit online dating services, spending millions of dollars looking for the right one. For a lot of people it seems to be working, and what is really interesting is that people aren’t afraid to admit it. There is no stigma to using the latest technological tools to find someone to spend the rest of your life with. In a way it is almost old-fashioned. You get to know someone by writing to them first before even meeting them. ABC News talks to several couples who found their partner this way, and explores how these services work.

OnlinePersonalsWatch.com Officially Launches as Leading Online Personals Industry News Site

{thumbnail}

(PRWEB) February 10, 2005

OnlinePersonalsWatch.com officially launched today as the premier source for online personals news and industry information. The site lists breaking news on internet dating, social networking and business networking from all over the world. Industry executives, analysts and users are invited to comment on the listed news items. OPW is led by industry executive Mark Brooks.

OnlinePersonalsWatch.com also lists online personals industry rankings, courtesy of Hitwise Competitive Intelligence. As more singles feel the bite of being single over the holidays and into the New Year, online personals leaders have been rallying for pole position in the competitive singles market.

Hitwise reports on industry rankings based on the number of website visits. Monthly data for January reports Yahoo Personals continuing to lead the way in the market, followed by Match, American Singles and eHarmony. WebDate had more visits than either Friendster and FriendFinder and moved to the 5th ranked most visited online personals site. MSN Match.com leapfrogged into 11th place. Cupid.com moved up two spots to take 12th place.

Sites focusing on personality profiling are holding firmly onto their positions in the market; eHarmony is the leader among personality profiling websites, followed by True and PerfectMatch.

Other popular sites with very specific targeting are seemingly etched into strong market positions. Sites focusing on religion are very established. JDate appears to be the most popular religion specific dating site – in top spot for the month of January, followed by BigChurch, ChristianMingle and ChristianCafe.

Editor, Mark Brooks, has been involved in the online personals industry since 1998 when he launched ace-club.com as Silicon Valley’s social activities club for young professionals. He subsequently helped launch one of the first personality profiling sites which was acquired by EZBoard. Mark went on to work with the CEO/Founders of leading sites Friendster, FriendFinder and Cupid, guiding branding, marketing and acquisitions initiatives.

”Finding the right partner is the most important decision a person can make. Online personals sites hold great promise in helping us improve the quality of these decisions by various means. I hope to give greater visibility to the industry as a whole with OnlinePersonalsWatch,” stated Mr Brooks.

Note: Categories defined by OnlinePersonalsWatch.
