Media Release: Love is where it’s app, with Spider Online’s ‘Cupid Computer’

CALLING all singles, Glasgow digital specialists, Spider Online, are looking for love… on your behalf!

Says a spokesperson: “Digital romance is nothing new and online dating is the norm these days; how else do you ‘make friends’ when you work every hour that God sends, have no time for the pub and spend the rest of your spare time glued to your tablet?

“We spend more time on the net with friends than we do in real life*, and the average number of Facebook friends is currently 150, but how well do we really know them? What do they do for fun, what’s their favourite book, who is their favourite band and most importantly, are they single?

“Spider Online love digital, so what better way to demonstrate the power of social media than to jump on the passion wagon and create a digital love app that allows you to find your perfect match at the touch of a button?

“Their developers designed the Cupid Computer, a matchmaking app that will cut to the chase and find the ‘connectors’ in amongst your network of Facebook friends, to show clients how quickly and easily they can engage using social media. The fun Facebook app finds and matches the user with single friends in their network, then picks their perfect match!”

Spider Online MD, John Campbell, says: “We are developing apps for clients and utilising Facebook’s API to showcase our creative thinking. The Cupid Computer follows on from our successful ‘Naughty for Santa’ Facebook campaign last Christmas and is a bit of fun for those thinking about Valentine’s Day at this time of year.”

To find your heart’s desire using the Spider Online Cupid Computer, log onto and click on the big red heart. Who knows, your true love could have been sitting in your inbox all this time!
