TECH CRUNCH - Jan 3 - Now that Bumble is just about two years ago, we can start looking back and comparing it to where Tinder was at its two year birthday. Back in 2014 Tinder was expanding beyond college campuses and set on becoming dating app for all. Two years in the company was seeing a billion swipes a day, and matching ~12M people a day. On average, active users were spending ~90 minutes per day in the app. Bumble, on the other hand, reported that just 18 months after inception users were spending ~100 minutes a day in the app. And two years after launching, the company is matching ~4M people a day and seeing ~220M swipes per day. Swipe-based dating apps are much more common than they were two years ago. There is much more competition, and when Tinder was young it was one of the only app-based dating platforms in the space.
