Online Dating is NOT for minors.
The IAC is not going to conduct Identity Verification (ID) to screen all Tinder's members.
When the IAC Personals bought OKCupid (3 years ago) for an astronomical amount of money, the OKCupid team had the task to copycat Badoo, but they failed in that mission. IAC Personals backed Tinder instead, as the copycat of Badoo. Tinder is only a cheap marketing tool to send prospective clients to Match and make them paid there, but it seems there is a divorce between Tinder and Match just now! Perhaps the IAC will "discretely bury" Tinder soon, it will absorb it and merge with Match mobile (with Stream and Mixer features) as soon as possible.
It seems Tinder is like Chatroulette but it will collapse like Skout.
For me; it is clear the IAC acquired FriendScout24 (old and obsolete site) and HowAboutWe (as gift) because they do not want to innovate. They want to squeeze their big databases to get all the juice (money) from the wallets of the daters.
Please see this information from Alexa and Compete, they show their sites reached operating ceiling!
The Online Dating Industry is performing like the Pharmaceutical and Cosmetic Industry before the USA Food and Drug Administration was created. There is no/weak Legislation, no ID verification, low reliable background checks, no Quality Norms. No one compatibility matching method is Scientifically Proven. The entire Online Dating Industry for serious daters in 1st World Countries is a HOAX, performing as a Big Online Casino, with a low effectiveness/efficiency level of their matching algorithms (less than 10%). In the same range as searching by your own.
The Online Dating Industry needs Innovations, but the innovations the Online Dating Industry needs will come from only one source: the latest discoveries in theories of romantic relationships development with commitment.
