The internet is for... ah, you know...

I started in internet fandom many, many years ago, back when dinosaurs were stomping around in chatrooms, and I seem to recall a lot less 'shipping. It may just be my choices of fandom or venue, but it seems to me that nowadays, fandom is more about 'shipping- specifically, the porn- than it used to be.

Does this match with other people's experiences? Is there a quantitative difference in the amount of 'shipfic versus genfic or even things like character shrines? If so, what do you think are the reasons behind this change?
