I just noticed that Google just added Google Romance
(Beta). It was featured right off the homepage. First time I see this, you? If this is new, funny that they launch it on April Fools rather than St Valentines Day....
Here is what it offers:
Google Romance is a place where you can post all types of romantic information and, using our Soulmate Search™, get back search results that could, in theory, include the love of your life. Then we'll send you both on a Contextual DateTM, which we'll pay for while delivering to you relevant ads that we and our advertising partners think will help produce the dating results you're looking for.
With Google Romance, you can:
* Upload your profile – tell the world who you are, or, more to the point, who you’d like to think you are, or, even more to the point, who you want others to think you are.
* Search for love in all (or at least a statistically significant majority of) the right places with Soulmate Search, our eerily effective psychographic matchmaking software.
* Endure, via our Contextual Dating option, thematically appropriate multimedia advertising throughout the entirety of your free date.
Interesting! I wonder how this will all play out when you do a web search?? Perhaps you search on someone's name and bingo there they are ready looking for a date..... Hmmm, not likely! It will be fun to watch.
