I have been meaning to comment on this topic and have to agree with a number of Veit's points. I think Zimbardo is missing some interesting issues. I think technology has had an effect on both men and women. Part of this is that it gives one access to others who are more alike than generations before. Thus, those that might be socially awkward or have poor success with women might be more likely to find each other and bond over mutual failures,
but there is never a person there to show any of them the err of their ways. Conversely, a girl would not have to settle for such a person given the popularity of social media and online dating, there are now opportunities to expand outside of your immediate geographic area. If those two assumptions are correct, is it simply that while social media and internet technology open doors to meeting many new others, they also serve to isolate us in our comfort zones and there is less of a need to venture out into other circles. I'm just spinning yarn based on what I have seen though. I have not looked at any data on this.
