Some social sites have a focus on dating such as Tagged, eHarmony, and Match, or a specific demographic group like BlackPlanet. These often include detailed profile information not available on more general-purpose social networks so that members can find “compatible” companions. Many of these social networking services, such as Facebook, impose restrictive terms of use for their data.

Though less immediate, these systems have the advantage of allowing each participant to schedule their participation without much coordination with other people who may be in a wide range of time zones. They also encourage more careful contributions. In contrast, synchronous systems, like chat, instant messaging, videoconferencing, and graphical worlds, require that partners interact at the same time, as in face-to-face interactions and telephone calls.
