A Net dating service, also known as online dating or internet dating, is an example of a dating system and allows individuals, couples and groups to meet online and possibly develop a romantic or sexual relationship. Net dating services provide un-moderated matchmaking through the use of personal computers, the Internet, or even cell phones.
Such services generally allow people to provide personal information, then search for other individuals using criteria such as age range, gender and location. Most sites allow members to upload photos of themselves and browse the photos of others. Sites may offer additional services, such as webcasts, online chat, and message boards. Sites sometimes allow people to register for free but may offer services which require a monthly fee.
Many sites are broad-based, with members from a variety of backgrounds looking for different types of relationships. Other sites are more specific, based on the type of members, interests, location, or relationship desired. (from Wikipadia)
通常會員分成銀級跟金級, 一開始進去是免費的,可以留下您的資料,照片.....但是呢? 要變成金級通常都要變成付費.
關於這個,前一陣子小弟試了一下( 爲了報告 ),相當慘! 就像在google找資料大海撈針一樣,很難出現妳覺得還不錯的對象
下面就是我瀏覽幾個美國評論網站對online dating service所做的評論:
- Lookers and payers
How do the websites make money? You can post your information on the website and wait Mr. Right coming. But if you search or find some body who may be your Mr. Right, you need to pay some money. However, there are less people who pay the money, and the ratio is nearly 6:1.
Although they was paid some money, the websites are not responsible for your breakout. The heartbroken don’t blame the breakup on the matchmaker. In the other hand, some information is wrong or somebody’ pictures is not himself, but the website are not in charge of these.
- Married, but looking
It was popular not only with the brokenhearted, but also with broken marriages. Research published earlier this year indicated that about one –third of online users are married. Many websites close this category, but still a lot of married people use them to search lovers or playmates.
- Running an online personal business is a pretty cheap date
One owner of the famous websites said the I have 43 employees and we’ll bring in 43 million this year. The margin are almost super-margins. Because it has so much interest, some business are in the borderline of moral. And there’s the second-tier, specialty sites, like the aggressively sexy “Nerve.com”, which have dedicated followings and promise users a more targeted field of prospective date.
