Dil Mil, a dating app for the Indian diaspora, is redefining “arranged” marriages
According to the Dil Mil app’s information, almost 90% of Indian marriages are arranged or semi-arranged by spouses’ families.
Generally, parents take the decision in place of their children.
Last week, Dating.com Group acquired Dil Mil, a dating app for Indian and other south Asian countries immigrants.
The app has around 1M users in the US, the UK, and Canada, 20M matches and averages one marriage per day.
“Over 80% of south Asians marry other south Asians, but south Asian expats are geographically dispersed across the world, making it hard for them to meet each other,” said KJ Dhaliwal, founder, and CEO of Dil Mil. “Historically, most of them have met offline through their local social circles.”
Most children ‘will be born to parents who met online’ by 2037
eHarmony cooperated with Imperial College Business School to complete a research on “e-babies”.
According to the data, by 2037, more babies will be born to parents who met online than offline.
And within the 2020 decade, 40% of babies born will be “e-babies”, born to parents who met on the Internet.
Tencent is testing another new social app, Youji
Tencent has released the third app this month, and now it’s a social networking app, Youji.
Youji uses a microblogging type of platform, allowing users to publish short posts similar to Twitter.
The app is now available in the Chinese App Store, but only to invited individuals during the testing period.
