We all know that the “social” space has changed the dating scene. Facebook has thrown all sorts of new tools and little wrinkles our way.
Now that the virtual hangouts have caught up with crowded bars as a place to meet a mate, social games are finding a new way to shine. Zynga ran a poll this week in Words With Friends, its super-popular Scrabble-like tile word game for phones and Facebook. Over 118,000 players responded, and of them, 10 per cent claimed that Words With Friends had led directly to a hookup.
Break down that number, and there are over 11,000 folks whose tile draws were apparently very, very lucky indeed.
