Americans View Online Dating Sites More Favorably

Facebook announced last month that it is launching a dating app which could be good news for the social network since Americans look more favorably these days on dating sites.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 21% of American Adults now have a favorable opinion of online dating services like eHarmony and match.com, up from just 16% in late 2012. Slightly more (29%) still view dating sites unfavorably, but that’s down noticeably from the 44% who felt that way in the earlier survey. Fifty percent (50%) are undecided.
