I loved the infographic on love from dating sites and World of Warcraft. It was fun to see how people meet each other nowadays. As someone that found someone using “old school” methods, this made me smile. I think that the World of Warcraft also provides that instant feedback that we as a people are becoming more accustomed to and expecting. We seem to not want to wait anymore and anything that could take up to 24 hours is just too long. I was not surprised by the number of hours a month that gamers play; I actually expected it to be higher. When meeting someone playing a game, you know that you have at least one thing in common and you didn’t even have to fill out a survey for that.
It is interesting and sometimes weird how people are now meeting, dating, and playing games by using the internet whether through dating sites or gaming sites. The world is definitively changing and changing quickly.
