Internet dating world
Tinder started in September 2012 as the first dating app featuring the swipe mechanism.
The first woman to ever place a personal ad was Helen Morrison.I will now discuss a few different dating apps in a more detailed way to see what their aim is, who they’re aimed at and how they use specific values or interest to attract people from the same community.I start with Tinder, the most popular app in western countries, and then move on to three dating apps that are more at the margins, The Leage, Ayo Poligami and Truly Madly.In deciding which dating app to subscribe to, users choose which part of their identity they want to emphasise in their dating life.
Dating apps have created a new online culture, making people do things they have never done before, like creating a number of online personas, all different depending on the medium they are using.
With the introduction of the internet in the 1990’s more and more people started placing their personal ads on websites instead of in newspapers and magazines.
