Tinder on the other hand argued that over half their user base was aged 18-24 (though the two nearly tarry up if we extend the range to 34, with Tinder’s 85% not hugely different to Global Web Index’s 83%).

Of course, the core Tinder demographic is singletons looking for romance of whatever shade…but whether or not that is the makeup of the user base has been called into question.
Tinder was a the centre of a storm of controversy in 2015, when a Tinder statistics published by Global Web Index suggested that 42% of Tinder’s user base already had a partner.

Tinder is a dating app that matches users to others based on geographic proximity.
It works through a simple interface that allows users to swipe right to ‘like’ or left to ‘pass’.
