Finding the right match while looking for a relationship on the internet isn’t easy at all, especially if you don’t know some basic online dating rules. You must be as honest as possible, emanate a positive vibe, don’t flake on your dates, and so on.
However, even when you apply the basic rules, the searching process for matches could still use a little help. That’s when the IoT (internet of things) can come in handy.
Smart data leads to compatibility matching
IoT meets online dating when it comes to data or access to a lot of it. Even today, experts work on ways to make smart data lead to compatibility matching. Top dating websites are eagerly trying to get the best data science experts and analytics on their teams.
Smart dating platforms will generate an enormous amount of data through IoT that will tell a lot about the behavioural traits of people. Gadgets generate crucial data such as app use, location, user photos, media preferences, sleeping patterns, and much more.
From captured data, algorithms will be created to find info regarding traits and dimensions for compatibility. After discovering someone’s priorities and temperament levels, the algorithms will use them to find the best match possible.
Online dating is so incredibly common nowadays – about three-in-ten adults from the US have used a dating site or app such as Omegle, CooMeet at least once. Even so, as it usually goes in technology in general, it’s always room for more!
With or without IoT helping the industry of online dating, there will always be people who will say that looking for a life partner on the internet isn’t the real deal. And they might be right! In the end, it all depends on how each person wants to start a relationship. What works for a person doesn’t necessarily have to work for someone else.
