Who do we know in common and what mutual interests do we share?
Dating in facebook
Almost everyone checks or changes their relationship status on Facebook from time to time — and dating companies like and Zoosk advertise heavily on the site.
If you're a dating site, Facebook is your Super Bowl.
Then there’s a couple who just ended a long term relationship and the girl doesn’t want to post any pics of her and her new boyfriend because she doesn’t want to hurt the old guy.
I also know a woman whose boyfriend of over a year won’t let her post pics because he doesn’t want his kids to see.
They check boxes, they answer quizzes, and they hope for the best.
This method has worked for some, but it has left millions of other users dateless and dissatisfied with their online dating experiences.
Then there was a woman who broke up with a guy because he was tagged in a photo kissing another woman on someone else’s page. With all the benefits of Facebook comes a lot of relationship issues, and my rule of thumb is, if you post something on Facebook, you have to be OK with it to the extent that if it was on national television, you wouldn’t care about ANYONE, (not one single person) knowing what you posted. But, what if you were dating someone, and the guy (or girl) told you he/she wanted complete privacy when it came to social media and his/her texts?
In other words, he/she didn’t want to “friend” you, or have you be a part of his/her Facebook account?
The responsibility of dating sites should be to facilitate great first dates.
