Google Gives Us April Fool's Day 'Romance'

Romance_150x58.gif

Continuing its tradition of April Fool's Day joke, Google has launched Google Romance, a humorous take on dating sites. Google SVP Jonathon Rosenberg explains the service saying, "Our mission, as you might have heard, is to organize the world's information. And let's face it: in what area of life is the world's information more disorganized than romance? We thought we could use our search technology to help you find that special someone, then send you on a date and use contextual ads to help you, ya know - close the deal."

The site goes on to talk about "contextual dating advice" and "contextual pre-date advertising" and jokes about dating sites in general saying, "When you do a Soulmate Search, your deeply personal and potentially life-altering search results are produced solely by computer algorithm, without human intervention of any kind."
