Hope you enjoyed St Valentine´s Day.
I have loved all things digital ever since I started to work in London, almost in the past century. What I would have never thought of is the role that technology would play in a love relationship. On St Valentine´s Day, I wondered about the relationship between love, social media and technology in general.
Have you ever used social media to meet potential dates? I have been asked out via text message and I know that people use Facebook to chat and then meet – and break. On the infographic below, it says that over 30% of couples have broken via FB. Whatever the figure, it seems to me that technology may be providing what is seen as a safer option – but totally cold!
Online dating is also widely used now (and generally publicised in the office). There are so many companies advertising in the London tube these days. Find love in London or your money back type of thing?
Take a look at the infographic below. Interesting data and easy to follow infographic.
