How will the story stack up against the greatest films about business?
As the internet plays an ever greater part in our social lives, with sites such as Facebook helping us to keep in touch with our friends, it's inevitable that we also use it to help us run our love lives as well.
One of the biggest issues that she and her friends have with online dating isn’t so much the people they meet, but which site they meet them on.
In the book they discuss the pros and cons of the different options facing them. With thousands of new apps and sites being created faster than we can download them, it’s hard to know where to start.
Instead it only lets you match with people who share your mutual friends - and it shows you a new ‘batch’ of users every day.
It also lets users have a more detailed profile than Tinder – which just offers a bio – and lets you add activities, preferred dating spots and so on. This UK website has more than 130,000 members and as one Twitter user tells me, it’s ‘perfect for meeting posh boys.’ This app has been popular over the last few years, as it shows people you have crossed paths with geographically.
It only gives you one match a day – which is someone you’ll have a mutual friend with via Facebook.
The more times you login the more points you get, which allows you to unlock special features.
At first people were drawn to the app for its simplicity - users can swipe left to decline and right to approve a date. Now, it seems you can’t go anywhere without meeting couples who got together though it.
The app’s best quality is undoubtedly its sheer amount of users – there are 50 million active ones, so it’s unlikely you’ll run out of potential matches.
