E-dating is now among the largest global e-commerce sectors, allowing for interaction that was once not possible. Despite its dominance in the e-commerce market and society, it is almost completely absent from the information systems research literature. Social Networking Communities and E-Dating Services: Concepts and Implications rectifies the absence of e-dating literature in the academic community by incorporating research from around the world, addressing the many aspects of e-dating and establishing it as a new research discipline. This unique collection of high quality international articles contributes toward the legitimization of e-dating as an area of research in e-commerce.
