It’s with great enthusiasm to announce that my friend Serena Ehrlich, known to most of you as @Serena on Twitter, will be co-hosting #DateChat on Thursday, March 5th at 5p/PT, 8p/ET.

This week’s topic will be Starting over Online: What to do when you’re newly single. How do you navigate online dating, not get frustrated with Tinder, OkCupid, and find quality dates online. We’ll be talking about the best dates, worst dates, and how to get noticed online.

We know everyone is swiping left and right on Tinder, but are they really meeting up IRL? How can Tinder be successful now that they plan to monetize their app with ads for free users, while allowing paid users to go back and find that swipe made in error to the left and cast a wider net by allowing users to search in other cities and countries?

Meet our Co-host: Serena

Serena Ehrlich, Director of Social and Evolving Media, is responsible for Business Wire’s internal and external content marketing, ranging from PR programming to social media updates to content development and amplification. With more than 20 years of experience in the content distribution industry, Serena understands both sides of the content and news industry – from creating compelling content that activates audiences, to understanding how distribution can amplify and impact news results.

A 1991 graduate of Brandeis University, Serena is also the membership chair of the international Social Media Club and is a past board member of the Dallas and Los Angeles local NIRI (National Investor Relations Institute) boards of directors.

Is Flirting on Facebook Emotional Cheating – #DateChat

#DateChatIt was an emotionally charged fun digital conversation on #DateChat with our guest host and relationship expert Stephan Labossiere @StephanSpeaks. We reached almost 25 million timeline deliveries with over a 1.2 million reach.

Our topic was digital cheating. Whether it’s flirty text messages, chatting on Facebook, or swiping on Tinder, what defines emotional cheating online?

Some who were with us on #DateChat felt that you should share passwords with your significant other. Others have felt betrayed by someone they were dating when they found suggestive text messages. Some feel flirting is fine, as long as you don’t take it offline.

Where do you cross the line between casual flirting and something that could damage your relationship?

Our Storify below highlights some of the tweets.

Join us next Thursday, March 5, 2015 at 5pm/PT, 8p/ET for #DateChat with guest host Serena Ehrlich @Serena.

Our topic will be starting over online. We’ll be talking about becoming newly single and the challenges of using online dating sites. Please do join us!
