We've got the scoop on what the online dating world will look like in 2019.
2019 is just a few months away, and with each new year comes new (and hopefully improved) ways to meet your match online. At MATCHSMITH, we've got our finger on the pulse of what's next in the world of online dating. Here are our predictions for the year ahead:
Social Media Dating: With Facebook already testing out a beta version of its online-dating offering, you'd be right in predicting that other social media platforms will follow suit. This means you'll likely be able to tweak a version of your social profile to match from, without having all of your details given away immediately.
Less Screen Time: Even though we are more attached to our tech than ever before, phone-free dates will become a must in 2019. Whether it's speed-dating or group dating, phones will be eschewed in order to make a real connection, and your time will be used more wisely when within the apps thanks to UX and algorithm improvements.
More Choice Than Ever Before: Online dating is here to stay, and with over 50 million people worldwide already having tried their hand at online dating, you can be certain that your match is likely waiting for you online.
