Dating Sites: Latest Trends

Since their advent in the mid 1990s, online dating websites have grown in quality and quantity. Early sites focused on finding a marriage partner and were more or less completely moderated by the service provider. You filled in a form giving information about yourself and your tastes and preferences and waited for your dating service to come up with potential matches. Something like your traditional neighborhood match-maker aunty!

Dating sites have kept pace with the changes in technology and the dotcom bust of the early 2000s brought in newer concepts like social networking and the idea of looking for a date without having to rely only on a specially-designed dating site. Much of the “embarrassment” factor was eliminated by these sites, since a lot of times, people weren't just looking for a date on these sites. Companionship, communication, friendship or just hanging' out were the new mantra.

Today you have sites that offer a range of services including live chats, video uploads, more tech-based profiling etc.

New trends in online dating:

* Poised for growth: Paid content makes these services among the biggest money grossers available on the web.

* Hotter than “real” places: Experts estimate that in the next decade, dating sites will be the preferred hot-spots to find your soul-mate. Forget about bars and clubs!

* Personal ads sites: Posting a personal ad on sites was the early fore-runner of dating sites. This seems to be trending again and posting an ad on one of these sites can give you huge response in almost minutes.

* More centralization: Today most people have multiple identities online. They have different ids for social networking, professional, email, micro-blogging, blogging etc. Many of these are now inter-connected and you can share ids across many.

* Information sharing: Many sites have hooked up their screening routines and are able to share information about potential cyber criminals, unsavory characters, scammers etc.

* Niche sites: Face-matching, horoscope-matching, love-pink-toenail-polish: you name it, it's out there. There is an enormous range and variety of sites offering to satisfy every kind of preference, ethnicity, social class, financial background, cultural and educational tastes. You can specify exactly what you want and get almost exactly that.

* Avatar-based: Slated to be the biggest new trend in online dating, uploading these apps will allow you to create a 3D avatar, integrate across sites and begin your virtual dating experience.

* Combating fraudsters: Shared intelligence across different brands, dating websites and services means that you can spot the scammer more easily and prevent a cyber fraud before it happens. Identifying a fake id is now easier than before.
