The World of Online Dating
This article discusses online dating, and how it has become the new norm. Sociologists for the eHarmoney site have design “algorithms” to determine personality types in order to match an individual with another. Many other sites use anthropologists and psychologists to help determine the best match for individuals. These websites help professors and specialists to use their theories out in the field. The website eHarmony is focused on research of heterosexual partners, so the basis of the algorithm is also based on that fact as well.
