When you find someone that interests you, you can send a message via the site to their username.The message is sent to their email address from your username - your real name and email address are never shown.
In turn, you may receive messages from other members.
These messages will be from their username and not their real email address, protecting both your and their privacy.
The “fan” feature that shows users who likes their profile is a nice bonus.
I also liked that safety tips are offered and a feature to block a member from viewing your profile is available.
One thing I personally liked about New Scientist Connect is that it is international, however members can choose areas of the world you prefer for your matches.
For example, if you only want to meet people in the UK you simply state that on the appropriate link.
If you're using Internet Explorer, and have specified an abnormally high level of paranoia for your browser, you may be able to remedy the situation by going to your Privacy settings under Internet Options, and selecting a privacy level of "Medium" for all sites, or just for this one.
This problem may also occasionally be caused by a glitch in Microsoft Internet Explorer.
In a sea of online dating websites one unexpected company, New Scientist, mostly known for their website and magazine, is offering their own online dating service.
New Scientist Connect is obviously geared towards those more inclined to enjoy science and technology.
