Have you ever been on a dating site? Swiped right or left?

I have, and while it's entertaining, it's also a mind game. Did you match? Will you match?!

Making a dating profile in itself can be quite the feat.

I don't mean strenuous, I mean like, which photo do you choose? What do you write in the "About Me" section?


Do dating websites even work?

"Dating apps or sites are not necessarily better equipped at introducing you to higher-quality candidates than meeting someone in public or through your social circles, says Reis. But they do give you a lot more options. Where else would you be able to meet two or three dozen people a week?" - Source

So... Maybe? I've landed a few dates, but I am also one to love to meet people organically.

Connection & Controversy
Six years after it rocked the world with friend requests and profile pics, Facebook launched what's become one of its most revolutionary and iconic features: Facebook groups. But what inspired the idea of exclusive or interest-based subgroups?

Zuckerberg's Groupies
In his 2017 manifesto, Zuckerberg expanded on Facebook's goal to "develop the social infrastructure to give people the power to build a global community that works for all of us."

He wanted Facebook users to have the autonomy to create communities that were civically-engaged, supportive, and inclusive. It was also a means to shift from friend-centric interactions to user experiences with an axiom of authentic communication in group discussions.

While we can't speak to how supportive or deep Facebook groups are or aren't, Zuckerberg's success with the initiative speaks for itself.

According to SellCoursesOnline, between 2016 and 2020, a Facebook report found that "the number of active members in Facebook Groups almost doubled from 1 billion to 1.8 billion users." As of 2022, that accounts for approximately 60% percent of the platform's 2.93 billion users.

Facebook Group Facts
  • In 2017, 100 million users said they belonged to groups they found "very meaningful." By 2019, that number had grown to 400 million.
  • 50 percent of Facebook users belong to at least five groups.
  • Driven by trends, branding, and offline communities and businesses with a need for an online presence, there are tens of millions of Facebook groups today.
  • Nearly 100 percent of users say Facebook groups foster a sense of belonging and a place to talk about important issues.
