In less than three years, Tinder has managed to claw its way to the top of the already crowded dating app market with more than 6 billion user matches to date, but what is t that makes the app so popular. Tinder founder Sean Rad took to Reddit yesterday to answer questions like that.
Tinder is on a tear. Founded less than three years ago, the dating app has facilitated more than 6 billion matches between users — many of whom end up getting married. Those are a few of the insights from Sean Rad’s Reddit AMA on Thursday, during which the Tinder founder explained how his startup has become so successful. The AMA took place just one day before Rad officially stepped down from the CEO role at Tinder. Recode reported today that former eBay exec Chris Payne will take over as CEO, five months after Tinder began looking for a new leader. Rad will stay with the company as president. Rad answered several questions on Thursday from Reddit users.
