BUSINESS INSIDER - Aug 4 - In the face of a serious population decline, Japan hasn't got a clue when it comes to online dating. According to a 2012 report by Japan's National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, the number of Japanese people will fall from 127M to around 87M by 2060. Many Japanese still view online dating as a scam. One bright spot for online dating in Japan is the rise of social media. Many dating apps now require a Facebook login, which helps reassure users that the person they're speaking with is real.
