Tinder’s parent company, Match Group, is suing dating app Bumble (via recode)
Badoo, backed Bumble and has its own silly / bogus patent, since 2007.
Bumble is not independent from Badoo structure (servers, database)
There is NO ROOM for Tinder and Bumble in the same boat, they are in war between them now, so if MTCH acquires Bumble, will close it forever (put to sleep).
Badoo, eight times more users than Tinder
Bumble backed by Badoo: Perhaps it is only a revenge against Match Group! No more than that.
Match Group CEO talks she is going to feminize Tinder.
Russian Biggest Social Network "VKontakte" Launched Tinder Clone
Badoo not on sale.
Be alerted, be informed Bumble is backed by Badoo (80%, majority-owned by Badoo)
It is said Badoo is related to Russian mafia of white hat hackers in the spyware business.
Badoo is in big war with Tinder (Match Group)
When Match Group (fka IAC Personals) bought OKCupid (7 years ago) for an astronomical amount of money, the OKCupid team had the task to copycat Badoo, but they failed in that mission.
IAC / Match Group "acquired" HatchLabs to "develop" Tinder copycat of Badoo.
Then Badoo backed Bumble to fight back and destroy Tinder (last December 2014).
My bet: Badoo is in the spyware business, no more than that!
Many complaints about Match dot com suggest ... database is full of old & inactive profiles, scammers, fake profiles, etc!
Perhaps Only way to sustain that huge revenue is / WAS creating fake profiles from inside to entice customers to subscribe. ???
