    Online Dating Is Bigger Than Porn

    http://mashable.com/2010/03/24/online-dating-infographic/

    Online daters should no longer be considered a desperate minority that trolls the web for love. In fact, a fascinating infographic from Online Schools (http://www.onlineschools.org/blog/online-dating/) reveals the truth about online dating ? it?s booming and might even be bigger than porn.

    Per the graphic ? which pulls data from a number of sources, including Reuters and The Washington Post ? online dating is worth more than one billion dollars per year, with the mobile phone dating market worth $550 million.

    Sadly, we all seem to be misrepresenting ourselves to attract an online mate. Men lie about their age, height and income, while women distort the truth about their weight, physical build and age. Though that doesn?t appear to stop online daters from marrying much faster than their offline counterparts, especially should the couple in question have met on eHarmony.

    and on a totally unrelated note... :D

    "Facebook Blamed For Rise of Syphilis in U.K."

    http://mashable.com/2010/03/24/facebook-syphilis/

    Health experts at NHS Hartlepool in Britain are claiming that Facebook played a role in the recent fourfold increase in cases of syphilis in Teesside, Durham and Sunderland.

    http://www.hartlepool.nhs.uk/content/page.aspx?type=news&page=287

    http://www.cdc.gov/std/syphilis/STDFact-Syphilis.htm

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/facebook/7508945/Facebook-linked-to-rise-in-syphilis.html

    Director of Public Health Peter Kelly told the Telegraph research points to sites like Facebook ?making it easier for people to meet up for casual sex,? and that of the syphilis cases he saw, ?several of the people had met sexual partners through these sites.?

    The connection between the STD and Facebook seems stretched at best, but the Telegraph also reports, ?young people in Sunderland, Durham and Teesside were 25% more likely to log onto social networking sites than those in the rest of Britain.?

    Still we?re not entirely convinced that Facebook is the primary factor contributing to the rise of syphilis in these areas; perhaps the educational institutions in these regions need to ramp up their safe sex initiatives. Although, with 400 million members now spanning the world, it does make sense that more hookups would happen with Facebook as the facilitator and go-between.

    Haha, this is funny because a long time ago a friend of mine got gonorrhea from hanging out on nexopia too much. True story.

    the difference between porn sites and dating sites is

    with a porn site you are able to watch all the hot girls get fucked by other guys

    with a dating site you get to fuck all the hot girls

    ...you choose

    Dude, SHUT THE HELL UP!!! We don't need every noob in the 3rd world and their cousins trying to get into the online dating space!

    THERE IS NO MONEY IN ONLINE DATING, REPEAT, NO MONEY TO BE HAD!!!

    YOU WILL LOSE ALL OF YOUR MONEY IF YOU TRY TO GET INTO ONLINE DATING!

    BAD GRAMMAR VERSION FOR INDIANS:

    Well there is the one benefit where you double your audience:

    Porn = Men
    Online Dating = Men & Women

    Plus, you don't have to worry about finding a host that approves of adult stuff.

    Would be nice if there were money in it... but I doubt there's money to be made. The only reason porn was so successful is because there's no "main" porn sites. With online dating you've got e-harmony & match.com to compete with.

    1. true, dating sites are not salacious, so you needn't worry about hosting.
    i'm thinking of dropping my adult site since it doesn't get much, if any, traffic.

    2. there's still money to be made in online dating, but competing directly against the big sites is indeed a waste of time. but, you can still cash in via things like cpa leads, affiliate programs, etc.
