AnastasiaDate, the internationally-acclaimed online dating service, has released new statistics to the online dating community and the results are surprising. For those who expected the majority of users to look for love online using their smartphones, iPads, tablets, or other high-tech browsing devices, the truth is very different. The survey shows that single men and women still depend on the desktop to find their online partners.
“The recent survey that we conducted was an eye-opener because we expected that the tech-savvy generation of today prefer using those jazzy, hand-held devices to find their compatible partners while on the move,” says AnastasiaDate’s Chief Communications Officer, Lawrence Cervantes. “It appears that the good old, reliable desktop is the king when it comes to online dating. It looks like men and women want to have a clear view of the profile, photographs, and other details of their potential partners on a bigger screen and that explains why the desktop computers are an overwhelming favorite.”
The smartphone is definitely more popular and has a wider reach than desktops but when it comes to online dating, the order of popularity takes a major flip. Of all the hits that AnastasiaDate received in September 2014, over 81 per cent of the total traffic for the month was through desktop computers. Only 10 per cent of people used their mobile devices and nine per cent used their tablets to browse through AnastasiaDate.
The AnastasiaDate survey also revealed that the key cities from where single men and women explored international online dating options included London, Sydney, New York, Mexico City, and Los Angeles. The leading countries which hit highest traffic for this domain included the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and Mexico.
“The survey may seem contrary to expectations, given the fascination for high-tech tools and gadgets; especially among the newer generation,” adds Cervantes. “But a sensible analysis makes it apparent that for establishing and developing a great online relationship, people must set aside their smartphones and tablets and communicate through the desktop.”
Unlike smartphones, tablets and other communication devices, the desktop can keep people focused on the task and can never be a source of distraction. That explains the overwhelming preference for desktop computers over other more-advanced and high-tech devices.
