A brand new survey released this week suggests additional technology is not always a bonus and sites could put themselves out of business if they carelessly add new features without consulting their existing member base.

Dating & friendship website surveyed their members to see if they'd like a Video Chat option. Whilst an excited 75% of men were eager to give it a go, a resounding 56% of women found the whole idea off-putting and wouldn't even consider it.

This may be influenced by the seedy image webcams have, thanks of course to the seedy motives of so many single male webcam users! But whatever the reason, MFO have decided to put those plans on hold for the moment, rather than risk becoming another site left wondering where all the women have gone.
