BROOKLYN - A study by Pew Research Center finds one in 10 people have used an online dating site.

Out of those users, the center says that 66 percent have actually gone on a date with someone they met online.

News 12 Brooklyn asked residents if they believe online dating is a good way to meet a potential mate.

Residents largely said that online dating is a good solution because due to busy work schedules, they don't get to go out often and socialize.
