If a professional researcher or research team conducted a similar study in a more professional, structured manner, there may be a higher response rate.
A more thorough and comprehensive study could be achieved with a longer time frame in which to peak the interests of more users to participate.

The purpose of this pilot study has been to explore and interpret how users aged 23-30 from Ottawa, Ontario experience the online dating community, Plenty of Fish.
I found that although each user had a different level of involvement in the site, all 4 initially heard of POF through word-of-mouth recommendations from friends and were attracted to the site predominately for its broad base of local users and free membership.
The findings differ from the studies outlined in the literature review predominately because the present study focuses on such a small body of participants from one city using one community.
This pilot study is extremely limited in terms of scope and depth, whereas the other 3 studies were done on a larger scale, over a longer period of time with financial funding.
