email or instant messaging; online communities such as chat rooms or virtual reality games; or social networking sites Those who met on social networking sites were more likely to be younger married more recently and African American compared to those who met on other ways on the internet MORE: Online Dating Doesnt Just Save You Time It Saves You at Least $6400 And when the participants were compared on marital satisfaction the partners who met via social networking reported being just as happy as those who were introduced on online dating sites which tout their compatibility benefits and more satisfied than those who met on online communities which nurture conversations among people with similar interests and beliefs What surprised Hall even more however was that the social networking-based relationships were happier than those that began offline in traditional ways such as being introduced by mutual friends "I was surprised by a lot of these results" he says "I think that social networking is the digital version of being introduced by friends" For most of the 20th century friend-based introductions were the primary way people met their spouse he says and social networks may simply be an extension of that pattern That could also explain why marriages that began on social networking sites were also no more likely to end in divorce than unions that were generated by online dating sites that involve algorithms and strangers trying to match people together rather than acquaintances who know their friends likes and dislikes and personality best MORE: With Oculus Facebook Can Reinvent Itself and Its Reputation Social networking sites also have another potential advantage over dating services they arent burdened by the pressure of trying to find love and the anxiety of having to present yourself in the best possible light to catch a mate While theres no truth filter on sites like Facebook and there is certainly some amount of self-promotion and exaggeration having your circle of friends visit your page can keep you pretty honest which means by and large your social network version of you is relatively close to the real thing at least thats what the studies show The result Conversations observations and interactions on social networking sites may be more casual and low risk relieved of the pressure and anticipation of a potential date (or rejection for a potential date) that shadow every picture message and response on dating sites "In part social networking sites provide a low risk high reward place to meet people" says Hall "Its a good place to do some investigating and a good place to learn about people that doesnt carry the self-presentational weight of creating an online dating profile" The fact that most of the marriages were among African-Americans could reflect the fact that at the time the data were collected between 2005 and 2012 African-Americans and Latinos were over-represented on social networking sites compared to their proportions in the general population For these groups he says such sites may have been a way to expand their already close-knit network of friends to include others like them but not yet part of their local connections Of course the data may also reflect more early social networking behavior than the way that people use the sites today While it dominated the early days of cyber connecting for example MySpace was surpassed by Facebook in 2008 as the primary source of online interactions And the rising age of Facebook users may also have an effect on the patterns that Hall found While its possible that people who meet and marry via social networking sites may always be from a young demographic its also possible that as more people join the site including those who are looking for a second chance at love later in life could drive that average age up What the results do show is that we shouldnt be so quick to dismiss social networks as an important tool for finding love in the 21st century According to a Pew Research Center Internet Project poll in 2013 24% of internet users have flirted with someone online compared to 15% in 2005 And Halls findings suggest that those flirtations if theyre on social networking sites are increasingly likely to lead to meaningful relationships and even happy marriages Contact us at [email protected] Joshua Wyner is founder and Executive Director of the Aspen Institute’s College Excellence ProgramThe Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington DC Virtually all Americans enroll in high school these days and have the opportunity to attend public schools for free but a century ago that was not the case In 1910 fewer than one in five Americans attended high school; by the start of World War II three-quarters of high-school aged Americans were enrolled The result is clear: decades of innovation economic growth and social mobility driven by a smarter more skilled American population The timing of President Obamas proposal today to extend this idea to the first two years of college could not be better Partnering with states the federal government would make community college free for many students promising to dramatically expand the number of Americans who attain post-secondary skills The demand for post-secondary education is today greater than at any time in US history and is projected to increase dramatically in the coming years Within the next decade 60 percent of jobs will require post-secondary education; meanwhile just over 40 percent of Americans today have a college degree Without significantly higher college graduation rates the US will face a shortage of millions of college-educated workers by 2025 Meanwhile the face of America is rapidly changing In the year 2000 for example twelve percent of American high school graduates were Hispanic By 2020 Hispanics will make up 25 percent of high school graduates Because these and other students of color have historically been underserved by higher education with lower enrollment and graduation rates they miss out on the economic opportunity higher education offers A program like this could begin to reverse that trend Our nations future depends on our higher education system delivering many more degrees of higher quality at a lower per-pupil cost to a more diverse population But the recent pace of change is too slow Since his first year in office President Obama has been calling on colleges to hold down costs and drive up graduation rates While slightly more students are graduating now than in the presidents first year in office the pace of change has been nowhere near fast enough to meet projected economic demand The presidents proposal offers a chance for our nation to reset the dynamic of who goes to college Too often the answer has been: Whoever could navigate the application process and afford tuition The possibility for tomorrow: Anyone willing to make the commitment Of course getting students into community college and reducing the cost is only half the battle Community colleges today enroll seven million students more than 40 percent of all undergraduates in the US Unfortunately fewer than half of all community college students graduate And while many community college degrees and certificates help students land jobs with strong wages from nursing to welding to information technology others result in jobs that pay wages barely higher than those earned by high school graduates In urban areas the projected growth in demand among employers for workers with a bachelors degree is significant and most jobs with higher wages require at least that level of education Yet while 80 percent of students entering community college intend to earn a bachelors degree only 15 percent do so within six years The presidents proposal acknowledges the need for better outcomes by tying the "free tuition" funds given to states to performance standards for schools and students The devil of course will be in the details Community colleges must not only enroll but must graduate more students Four-year colleges must accept more transfers count all their credits towards majors and degrees and graduate many more with a bachelors degree And everyone responsible for higher education policymakers community colleges and universities alike must work to ensure that more college students benefit from their higher education which includes landing (and keeping) a job with family-sustaining wages President Obamas initiative represents an immense investment in the future of the nation But as with all investments those responsible for its returns should ensure that the unprecedented access it offers is not hollow that the nine million students who could receive community college tuition actually learn graduate and attain the jobs and further education to which they aspire We know it can be done There are community colleges in our country like South Dakotas Lake Area Technical Institute with graduation rates above 75 percent Santa Fe College in Gainesville Florida sends more than half of its students to four-year universities and nearly two-thirds of those students go on to earn a bachelors degree Graduates from Washington States Walla Walla Community College earn an average annual salary of $42000 immediately after graduating growing to $57000 five years later Combine results from quality institutions like these with the elimination of community college tuition and our nation can unleash a new era of innovation and economic growth Like universal high school did Just imagine Joshua Wyner is founder and Executive Director of the Aspen Institutes College Excellence Program and author of the 2014 Harvard Education Press book What Excellent Community Colleges Do: Preparing All Students for Success.
