Technology has been changed the way of contacting people now days. Whether you try to keep in touch in with your family, friends or finding date, technology has made it very easy for everything. There are two types of online sites for these things. One is social media sites and other online dating sites.

Social media sites are those sites which are made to make friends or to stay connected with the friends, family etc. It can also be used for dating purpose.

Online dating sites are made just for the purpose of dating. People using these sites are there just to find a perfect partner or at least a date for him/her.

Sometimes people get confused between social media and online dating sites, which one is better for dating. Here are some major differences between these two, which will help you to find out which is best suited for you.

  1. Registration- The major differences between social media and online dating is their registration. Generally online dating sites charge the users to be a member of the site, whereas social media sites generally don’t charge users anything to be a member. So for people who can’t afford the online dating sites or who don’t want spend money on these sites can go for the social sites.
  2. Finding love/date- For the people looking for date online, both are very good option, but online dating sites  get some edge over social media in this case. The users of dating sites look only for date, they don’t talk to people just to make friends, so it takes less time to get a date in these sites. On the other hand social media also allow you to talk to stranger but in this case, it’s not necessary that the other person is looking for a date. So there may be a chance of getting friend zoned.
  3. Meeting is person- In this case both sites are same. You can meet anyone whom you have met online. But play I safe, sometimes it may be a fraud or scam and it is also same for both social media and online dating sites.
  4. Age group- This case has a very big difference between social media and online dating sites. On social media sites you can meet people of every age group and talk to anyone. But in  dating sites there is a fragmentation of age group. Some sites allow people of only certain age group and some sites match your profile with people only of your own  age group.
