PR NEWSWIRE - June 9 - Upscale dating app Luxy reports a disruptive shift in user behavior: Instead of dating, members who use the platform for business connections and making new friends have tripled. The app asked its members how long they are willing to wait to meet someone they are interested in. 63% want to wait until the pandemic is over. Only 20% of the singles think that video dating is an equivalent replacement. The disparity of the main objective on Luxy has changed in May compared to the situation before the Coronavirus: Long-term relationship 44% (February 58%), nothing serious 11% (February 34%), new friends 35% (February 8%).
Mark Brooks: On this note, we've expanded our focus to cover online social communities now as well, and have soft-launched the Online Social Community Association. See www.OSCA.gp and let me know if you, as an online social community leader, would like to be considered for (entirely free) membership. It's a brand new community. I feel the dating industry and the online social community industry have much to learn from each other, and are entirely non-competitive so we're working to create ways for you/them to learn and share. Watch this space. ;-)
