  • 73% of participants prefer to send a paper card over an e-card.
  • Only 11% of participants said they would use a dating website to find a date for Valentine's Day.
  • 69% of participants said they wish people "Happy Valentine's Day" more in person than online.
  • 71% of people polled said if they were to send a Valentine's Day message on a social network, Facebook is the best to use.

"Although surprised by the old fashioned responses, it's nice to reaffirm that no social network can compare to an in person, romantic gesture," says HooplaHa's Director of Content Stephanie Bousquet. "We wanted to celebrate and encourage the art of handwritten love letters, so we created Project Love Letter. We originally thought that our participants would adapt more to a web-based approach, but it's inspiring to know that people are still traditional about love and happiness."
