Survey questions about online dating
In the following research study, I aim to examine user’s experience of the online dating community, Plenty of Fish (POF).The experience a user has is based upon their reasons for participating, the level of their involvement in the community, and the qualities the community offers to its users.Not having any personal experience of utilizing online dating communities, my interest is founded in the concept that such an inherently human and private matter of finding a romantic partner is being administered in a public, online domain.Having heard about this particular site, POF, from various friends and coworkers, I considered it to be a good community to select as a context for user’s experiences.What are the negative/unsuccessful aspects of the community?As for delimitations, I will focus specifically on the free online dating community, Plenty of Fish, and users who are aged 23-30 living in Ottawa, Ontario.The central questions this research study intends to answer are: what is the user’s experience of the online dating community, POF?
And, what are positive/successful aspects of the community?
It will only take into consideration the experiences of 4 users from the Ottawa, Ontario Plenty of Fish community.
Included in this sample size are 4 men between the ages of 23 and 30.
The users of a free community may be less serious, or less involved with utilizing the service compared to users who pay to be members of an inclusive community.
The free quality of Plenty of Fish could also mean that it has a more diverse body of users due to its inclusivity.
