These concerns varied between participants and included physical, emotional and sexual risks, the risk of being scammed, the risk of encountering dangerous and dodgy people, the risk of pregnancy, risks to family, the risk of lies and deceit.To counter these risks, participants undertook various activities that made use of the technological resources available to them and also assessed how others did or did not use technology.In the dating market, both online dating sites are adding mobile web versions and applications to phones.
