The Historical Account Of Medium of Dating:
Before the latest manifestation of dating took place via applications and social media accounts, it was the advertisement section that was used as a tool to establish a connection. Every medium of application became a tool for communication.

In this year a bunch of Harvard students used the IBM 1401 computer so that they can create Operation Match. It was the first-ever matchmaking service in the USA that came to be just six years after the advent of technology.
Following the example, dating applications also took influence from mainstream social media. MySpace was still going hot in 2003, meanwhile came Facebook, at that time known as ‘Hot or Not’. Within three years, MySpace launched dating websites PlentyOfFish, OkCupid, and Badoo.
In 2012, it was the turn of Tinder and Hinge to spread the word that ” a new boss is in town”. Moreover, the popularity of the application put an accelerated stance in the dating world.
