Study: Single Americans admit to pre-date cyber stalking
(CBS 58) – A new study by JDP shows single Americans are likely to cyber stalk a person before a date.
The study found that 88 percent of people surveyed admitted to doing some degree of online research on potential dates. More than half of those people said they spent at least 15 minutes looking up the potential dates.
Women are two times as likely to look at “everything” on someone’s social profiles, according to the study.
The first place people are likely to look is Facebook and then Google. The majority of people who admitted to pre-date cyber stalking said they are first looking for pictures and videos and then the person’s interests. Additionally, two-thirds of people said they wouldn’t be embarrassed if their date found out they looked them up.
