BBC - May 21 - Coronavirus has had a "dramatic" effect on the way people use Tinder, said CEO Elie Seidman. Tinder has been downloaded ~340M times since its launch in 2012. But the vast majority of its revenues come from just 6M subscribers who pay for the "gold" service. The rate at which it picked up those paying-users declined as lockdown struck. Mr Siedman says we 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.
