Online dating has become less of a taboo over the past few years.
If you think they’d respond better to pictures, attach a few tumblr and twitter memes to that outgoing message.
Matched with 12 “dates,” Claire Smith, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Vancouver Convention Centre and Chair-Elect, PCMA Board of Directors, gives us her take on how this innovative platform could transform the meeting experience.
With society’s rising dependence on technology and social media, it was only a matter of time before we collectively became more comfortable with the idea of meeting our potential soulmates and friends with benefits’ online and/or on our phones.
