DATING IN THE DIGITAL AGE: SWIPING, LIKING, & SELLING THE SELFIE with Dr. Riki Thompson, UW Tacoma

How do people find love, connection, and belonging in the digital age? Success in the online dating world starts with a catchy profile as well as messaging strategies that make others want to chat and eventually meet. In this Think and Drink, Dr. Thompson will share her current research about how people attempt to construct a desirable self through online dating profiles and what makes them swipe right and like others.

Riki Thompson is an Associate Professor at the University of Washington Tacoma where she teaches courses in argument, writing, and graduate research. Her research explores the intersection of language, technology, stories, and identity.
