Just seen some news about Tinder:
It seems now Tinder plans to be a mix of Badoo, Zoosk, Snapchat, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and more.
C-level executives are cooking barbecues under the water (selling
smoke) and not paying attention to latest research from Academics which
could be beneficial for the Online Dating Industry.
My bet: Tinder is inviable. Tinder is like
Chatroulette but it will collapse like Skout. Lots of persons want to
use it, but nobody wants to pay for it. I think IAC is going to deactivate Tinder soon or later, it will absorb
it and merge with Match mobile (Please see Stream and Mixer features) if
Tinder is cannibalizing Match mobile application.
