IT WIRE - Nov 29 - Technology plays an integral part in how we interact, establish and terminate relationships. The old-fashioned phone call is great, but love is now definitely online and mobile,” said Managing Director of eHarmony Australia, Jason Chuck. Since 2007, the site has been responsible for one in every 50 marriages in Australia over the last five years, which equates to ~11K eHarmony Australia weddings. The site boasts ~ 1.5M registrations. Also with smartphones now being used by 8.8M Australians, 1 in 10 Australians say they have used an SMS to say “I love you” for the first time. Sadly, eHarmony’s research found that the same number of people has been dumped via SMS, email or social media. 1 in 10 Australians has found love online. 35-44 year olds are the most successful as 1 in 6 have found love online.
