Tagged's Valentine's Day Study Reveals Connection Between Social Games and Romance

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 10, 2011) - Just in time for Valentine's Day, Tagged, the world's #1 social discovery site and a social games leader, today released findings from its Gaming Romance survey. The study reveals that more than one-third of respondents have connected romantically through playing social games, highlighting that gaming is a great way to have fun, interact and find love.

Findings from Tagged's Gaming & Romance survey include:

  • Gaming and love? Who knew! 38 percent of respondents made a romantic connection through a Tagged social game.
  • I wish, I wish... A surprising 60 percent are wishful that they will make a romantic connection through social gaming.
  • To have and to hold... 65 percent think it's possible that they will meet the love of their life playing a Tagged social game.

"We've long believed that playing online social games is a great way to meet new people and make friends. However, we'd never actually asked our huge membership base if those new connections might really extend to romantic relationships," said Tagged's CEO Greg Tseng. "The survey results were surprising and indicate that whether it's Valentine's Day or not, social games are quickly becoming one welcome new way to initiate a romantic connection."

Tagged offers a variety of online social games, including the incredibly popular and addictive Pets member trading game.

Survey questions were administered in January of 2011 to Tagged members. Each question received over 1000 user responses.
