The dangerous of dating on website
Some 22% of 25-34 year olds and 17% of 35-44 year olds are online daters.
Online dating is also relatively popular among the college-educated, as well as among urban and suburban residents.
Women are around twice as likely as men to ask for assistance creating or perfecting their profile—30% of female online daters have done this, compared with 16% of men.
Even today, the vast majority of Americans who are in a marriage, partnership, or other serious relationship say that they met their partner through offline—rather than online—means.
Surprisingly, a mere 2 percent of pornographic sites are infected.
Conventional wisdom would flip that list upside-down.
People in nearly every major demographic group—old and young, men and women, urbanites and rural dwellers—are more likely to know someone who uses online dating (or met a long term partner through online dating) than was the case eight years ago.
That is statistically similar to the 17% of online daters who said that this had happened to them when we first asked this question in 2005.
Even today, online dating is not universally seen as a positive activity—a significant minority of the public views online dating skeptically.
(Money Watch) Security software company Symantec (SYMC) has released its Internet Security Threat report for 2011, and it is packed with interesting information about the relative risks of online activity.
Perhaps the most fascinating part of the report is in the review of malicious code trends, which lists the 10 most dangerous categories of Websites.
