Tinder's new 'Boost' feature in 2016 == Badoo in 2006

Tinder 4th Birthday
Perhaps there is an internal war between Tinder and Match App.
Tinder is cannibalizing Match and Match Group now wants to promote more
Match App and not much Tinder because Tinder is not monetizing as
Please do not forget when the IAC Personals, now Match
Group, bought OKCupid (5+ 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 (via Hatch Labs),
as the copycat of Badoo.
But Tinder can not outperform Badoo (10+ years old site).
And Badoo also owns Bumble.
Match Group, parent company of Tinder, has a big debt of USD 1.2 Billion.
Match Group is only a collection of old and obsolete online dating
sites: Match, Meetic, Chemistry, OkCupid, LoveScout24 (FriendScout24),
OurTime, HowAboutWe and many more!
Match Group does not know how to innovate in the Online Dating Industry.
Match goes for Generation X, 30 - 50 years old users = "named: traditionals".
