Tinder Announces It Has Made 1 Billion Matches

TechCrunch reports, “Tinder is announcing that it has made 1 billion matches between its users.

As most (all?) of you know, Tinder works by giving users a stack of potential matches and allowing them to swipe right or left to show their interest. If two users express mutual interest, then the app will connect them, allowing them to send each other messages — those are the matches that Tinder is counting.

The company isn’t disclosing how many registered or active users it has, so it’s hard to make an apples-to-apples connection to other apps. What this illustrates, according to co-founder and CEO Sean Rad, is, “Tinder is here to stay. Tinder is absolutely solving a core human issue that people have with social discovery.”

If you want some sense of how quickly Tinder has grown, well, when we first covered the IAC-backed startup in January of last year, it said it had made 1 million matches, and the number was 500 million in December.”
