Coronavirus has had a “dramatic” effect on the way people use the dating app Tinder, its boss has told BBC News, though the changes may suit plans he already had in store for the platform. The coronavirus outbreak and lockdown conditions have brought mixed fortunes to online-dating platforms like Tinder, according to its chief executive Elie Seidman.
Tinder users made 3 billion swipes worldwide on Sunday 29 March, the most the app has ever recorded in a single day. There has been a “dramatic shift” in behaviour metrics which are normally stable, says Mr Seidman. This is not such good news for Tinder, which is free but relies on premium subscriptions for its revenue.
Tinder has been downloaded more than million times since its launch in But the vast majority of its revenues come from just 6 million subscribers who pay for the “gold” service. The rate at which it picked up those precious paying-users declined as lockdown struck. Mr Siedman says you might have to wait two or three financial quarters to see the full economic impact on Tinder, as the scale of the global crisis becomes clear.
The other issue that will become clear with time is whether the popularity of virtual dating, by video call, is here to stay, once physical meet-ups with strangers become more possible. The video call service will operate on a double opt-in policy, so both sides of the match would have to agree to it.
