Rumor: Benchmark May Invest in Tinder at a Valuation as High as USD1B ???

"Our source said Benchmark is close to leading a USD50 million to USD75 million investment round in Tinder, whose majority stakeholder is IAC, Barry Diller's grab bag of digital companies. The investment round will value Tinder, a 22-month-old app, somewhere between USD750 million and USD1 billion, said the source. Tinder's ownership has always been a tangle of conflicting narratives."

Please read also "How Tinder will collapse"
Facebook allows minors to use it (people from 13 to 17 years old)
Online Dating is NOT for minors.
The IAC is not going to conduct Identity Verification (ID) to screen all Tinder's members.
It seems Tinder is like Chatroulette but it will collapse like Skout.
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.
