Does anyone know f this lawsuit and the one filled by NetSoc LLC. are fueled in the shadows by Russian Mafia of Badoo, owners of Bumble (79%)???
When Match Group (fka IAC Personals) bought OKCupid (several years ago) for an astronomical amount of money, the OKCupid team had the task to copycat Badoo, but they failed in that mission.
IAC / Match Group "acquired" HatchLabs to "develop" Tinder copycat of Badoo.
Then Badoo backed Bumble to fight back against Tinder.

IS the CEO round mouth Diller involved in this?

I shacked up right before social media explosion and what I've gathered as pros/cons from various students is...

Pros: An easy hook-up app

Cons:An easy hook-up app

It's easier to go to a public place where you are most confident and talk to another human being.

It is so rare for people to do this (especially men) that it's almost a guarantee you'll score if you just talk to someone confidently instead of swiping someone's picture.

A necessary skill lots of guys have gotten complacent about.

Bumble backed by Badoo: Perhaps it is only a revenge against Match Group! No more than that.

Tinder reached operating ceiling, that is the main reason MTCH launched Tinder U, they need ambassadors.
Do not forget MTCH has big debt, in the range of USD 1.3 Billion.
Chispa, Pairs and Crown dating app, seems to be more bells and whistles and not really innovations. Perhaps Facebook is copycatting Tinder and Bumble, with some minor improvement with the help of former eHarmony's team,

and perhaps Facebook dating app will be free in order to erode Match Group dating sites.

Blowhard S Pumpkins • 2 years ago

I have never used any of this type stuff

Futile Destiny • 2 years ago

Me neither. Can't force it. I always meet people the old fashioned way.

As someone who cyberstalks you because you won't be my facebook friend, give me enough time and I am sure I can find something on you on one of those sites.

Blowhard S Pumpkins • 2 years ago

The fact that you haven't says more about you (?) than anything else

"Match Group, which is headquartered in Texas"

All you really need to know about a sexual harassment suit and its legitimacy.

BillPasadena • 2 years ago

All you really need to know

How do you explain NAMBLA being headquartered in San Francisco?

If you support NAMBLA, you don't have to answer the question.

Guest • 2 years ago

The National Association of Marlon Brando Look Alikes has always been in SF.

The movie star liked the city

BillPasadena • 2 years ago

Looks who jumps up to defend NAMBLA.

Guest • 2 years ago

You don't like Marlon Brando?

I know his leads in the remakes of Mutiny on the Bounty and Island of Doctor Moreau were stinkers, but he had a vast body of work worth celebrating.

BillPasadena • 2 years ago

I have a very low opinion of you already but I did expect you to be opposed to nambla instead of making silly little jokes.

You keep surprising me and not in a good way Spuddie.

Guest • 2 years ago

What do you have against people who look like Marlon Brando?

Futile Destiny • 2 years ago

Oh you silly.

I don't explain NAMBLA being headquartered in San Francisco. Weird you would know that. How many times have you taken the tour there?

BillPasadena • 2 years ago

I don't explain NAMBLA being headquartered in San Francisco

Me neither.

It's hard to explain why NAMBLA would pick SanFran.

Why do you know that? What is your obsession with NAMBLA?

BillPasadena • 2 years ago

Why do you know that?

To mock people like you that think pointing to texas is politically funny.

If calling out pedophiles bothers you, ask yourself why.

It doesn't. Just find it weird you're so obsessed with NAMBLA. It's like you wish to join.

BillPasadena • 2 years ago

It doesn't.

Your comments prove otherwise.

Why is that?

It doesn't what?

Matty Groves • 2 years ago

A gal-pal of mine was using Tinder a number of years ago. Having gotten married a few years before social-media dating became a thing I asked if I could take a look at her app.

Ended up accidentally swiping “yes” on a backwards cap wearing, frat boy douche’s profile. Took her a few weeks to forgive me.

stfuDonny • 2 years ago

Wait, let me practice my shocked face.

1st Time Caller • 2 years ago

You mean O face? It is Tinder after all.

DRUH_71 • 2 years ago

"O"marosa face?

1st Time Caller • 2 years ago

Look, they posted this one story twice to make up for Omarosa stories. Let's keep her out of here. ;)

DRUH_71 • 2 years ago

What does this have to do with Omarosa?

flyover • 2 years ago

Or, Trump?

1st Time Caller • 2 years ago

Good question.
