Is this a sign of time?
Dutton: On the Internet, people are always moving to the next cool site. And it is still very difficult to predict where these folks will go.
Dutton: First of all, it never looked that way. Already Arpanet had been writing e-mails since the mid-1970s, using the Internet messenger. But for many years, the Internet is just a tool for computer scientists and academics – even in 1991, its benefits were annoyingly difficult to convince other people. Internet use has been complicated and visually unappealing. People thought the Web was something like a CB radio. Colorful, more graphical user interfaces anyway because local “bulletin boards” were much more popular back then. Breakthrough came with the first graphic Web browsers, Mosaic and Netscape. At that time, he realized that it was going to be a mass medium. All at once, everyone is learning HTML and creating their own websites around me.
Dutton: This is beyond what anyone could imagine. A third of the UK population today see the Internet as their information essential to daily life and the more important needs of business, press or television.
SPIEGEL: Oxford Internet Institute, run, explores the impact of the Internet on society, politics and everyday life – with surprising results, for example, often in the field of friendship.
Dutton: Yes. We reviewed how many couples have met on the Internet, especially since 2000 and the social network. The percentage is increasing, and almost one in three couples with Internet access, who have met since 2000, have met online in Germany, the highest – with the help of a social network, a chat room or online agency.
Dutton: … not to mention all that panic around dangerous people lurking out there – especially given that the Internet was often seen as a visible place for only computer geeks’ relationships. But in the meantime, Net has apparently been adopted as a new venue to search for someone who might not have met otherwise. It’s a matter of trying things before people are convinced. That is why I search the Internet for an “experience” technology.
Dutton: Yes, couples who met each other online are more diverse – as there are more differences in age and education than couples rather than offline. And people with high socioeconomic backgrounds have more interest in working class people seeking online relationships than people. They often want the neighborhood to get out of their establishment, broaden their horizon.
Dutton: The Internet is good at connecting people with similar interests. Many dating services promise to match couples, others based on interests by personalities. There is even a dating site for the Gothic scene.
Dutton: No. Young people are not consciously interested in finding partners on the internet. Many still have real-life social networks. Over forty people, with one or two marriages behind them.
