Twenty years after the launch of OKCupid and a decade after the facilitation of mobile dating apps, we can say that online dating has permeated our daily lives and society, influencing not only how we meet our potential partners, but also who those significant others are. So it’s time to look back at a decade of research on online dating and individuals and try to answer questions like: have we gotten better at spotting false information on dating profiles? Or: Has Tinder permanently changed our expectations of partners and romantic relationships?
Consumer Informatics invites you to Dr. Giulia Ranzini ‘s talk on the past and future of online dating, titled “Ten things we know about online dating (and a few we don’t).” During her keynote, based on a wealth of research and some personal observations, Dr. Giulia Ranzini will provide an overview of online dating research, what it’s been like, and where it might go next.
Dr. Giulia Ranzini is a social media researcher and scholar in marketing communication and media psychology and Assistant Professor at Vrije University in Amsterdam.
