    Today's online dating scene owes its success to how graphs analyze even the most complex relationships between users, from shared friends and locations to personal passions and hobbies. By taking all of these factors into consideration, online dating sites better identify potential matches.

    For example, SNAP Interactive found that relationships are more successful if they are forged between people who share common friends. SNAP uses a graph database to identify common friends and friends-of-friends of the 68 million users on its dating site Are You Interested, effectively leveraging 10 billion user connections.

Whether you're identifying a potential dating match or mapping the suspicious behaviors of a fraud ring, the uses and applications of graph databases are endless. Graphs are ideal for today's next-generation applications because they efficiently store both data and its relationships – something other databases simply can't do.
