SARASOTA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Negative reputation information online including mugshots and criminal records is important to dating decision making, according to recent polling.
A recent online survey conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of NetReputation.com surveying consumers who use the Internet to support social networking, dating and relationship building has shown that criminal records and mugshots, all now readily available on the Internet, could play a substantial role in dating decisions.
The survey asked adults who use the internet for social networking, dating and or relationship building their likelihood to date someone after finding their mugshot or criminal record online.
An overwhelming majority—seventy-three percent—indicate they would likely not date someone if they found that person’s mugshot or criminal record online. Additionally, nearly two thirds of U.S. adults (64%) say they use the internet for social networking and nearly one in five (16%) say they use the internet for relationship building.
