Social networking sites create new friends in dating
Social networking sites offer fertile ground for checking in on past relationships, and also for posting updates about current ones.
Some 27% of all SNS users have unfriended or blocked someone who was flirting in a way that made them feel uncomfortable, and 22% have unfriended or blocked someone that they were once in a relationship with.
Nearly one third (30%) of SNS users with recent dating experience have used a social networking site to get more information about someone they were interested in dating.
Social networking sites also offer an additional venue for meeting or being introduced to “friends of friends.” Some 12% of SNS users with recent dating experience have friended or followed someone on a social networking site specifically because one of their friends suggested they might want to date that person.
It wasn’t that necessary in the old days but the years have changed and so have the practices.
In today’s internet world we come across so many relationships whether single or committed and when we are attracted towards someone we try to contact them and social media is the best way in this mass communication world.
