Created online dating
With those sites, the idea of online “social networking” was born and online dating was a byproduct of that.
Perhaps more than any other revolution in communication, the use of the Web for dating makes sense.
The stigma of online dating has been slowly lifting, due in large part to the rise of social networking.
Though the majority of marriages still meet through more traditional means, nearly everyone on the Web has met someone or made a friend online.
Because of this, even before the Web became widely used, the Internet had a robust, if technically limited, dating culture.

In 1700, barely a decade after the invention of the modern newspaper, the first matrimonial service was created.
