- SA's first ever online dating survey is being launched this week by NETucation, an independent Internet marketing and research company. According to Ramon Thomas, MD of NETucation, "Online dating is one of the secret success stories of the Internet, and we are aiming to put the spotlight on this and other new techno-centric dating trends." NETucation estimates the size of this market to be about 100 000 to 150 000 active users. This is a fraction of SA's more than 3,5m Internet users, and substantially less than the one million Online Banking users, reported earlier in 2004 by World Wide Worx.
