TECH WORLD - Apr 23 - Sean Rad sat on the stage alongside Farrah Storr, the editor of Cosmopolitan. When asked if it makes him angry when Tinder is referred to as a hook-up app he said: "Not angry, but it's incorrect. It is a platform. What our users decide to do is completely up to them." Tinder's largest demo is the millennial. He adds: "I don't think 18-25 year olds are looking to get married. We survey our users and the majority of them want a meaningful connection." One of the more interesting sections of the conversation was around Rad's short exile. "It was a surprise", he said. "The company was doing incredibly well. I think the board had some fears that at a young age I wouldn't be able to manage that growth. I had fears. I didn't know if I could manage this growth. So we brought in a new CEO." When asked if he is worried about rival dating apps, Rad said: "No, not at all. We're a global brand, with tens of millions actively using Tinder."
