At this Education Evening, we are going to watch a documentary titled “The Mobile Love Industry” (2015) by the VICE, which questions the ways in which mobile apps have become an essential part of our search for the next hook-up, true love, and everything in between. We will have a discussion session afterwards.
Here is the summary of the documentary:
“The smartphone has become the crucial link in modern relationships, it facilitates far more connections than real-world interaction ever allowed — from dating app geniuses who use data and game theory to hack the system, to the darker side of digital love, where app addiction runs rampant and users find themselves endlessly swiping in an empty search for more.
Karley Sciortino will take on the task of determining where the human search for love is headed in the 21st century. She’ll meet with the brains behind these dating apps and try each of the most promising apps out using her own love life as a testing ground.”
