In my opinion, they’ve missed the mark so badly at such a crucial time that I wonder if they are now heading down the path towards irrelevancy, just as Myspace did a decade ago.In just 3 short years since launch, Tinder has ushered in a new wave of mobile dating apps and has changed the way people date in profound ways (both good and bad).and most of that mega-traffic comes from net mavens well under 35.
Not only does it potentially cut down on the number of credentials you have to remember (although hopefully you're solving that by using a password manager, right? By changing the credentials on your old accounts and disassociating them from online services that you use in the present-day, you can help make sure none of your other Internet identities are put at risk.
However, these feedback loops can work just as fast in reverse, as Myspace found out: Tinder should thus be 100% laser focused on delivering maximum value to its users so that it can retain them and ultimately monetize (some of) them.
As successful revenue-generating consumer services like Dropbox, Netflix, Evernote, and Spotify have proven, the more perceived value you provide for users the more willing they are to part with cash.
