Tinder owner says it's not afraid of Facebook dating app
Match Group, the owner of dating apps including Tinder and Match.com, says it is not worried by the dating tool which Facebook unveiled last week. "We don't think Facebook will have any impact on Tinder, which is our growth engine," Match chief executive Mandy Ginsberg said. In addition to the Tinder and Match.com dating apps, Match Group also owns OkCupid, PlentyOfFish, OurTime, Meetic and Pairs. Users originally needed a Facebook profile to be able to use the app, with Tinder profiles built using Facebook information. Match Group stressed that Tinder profiles were now largely user-generated and that matching algorithms did not rely on Facebook or any other third-party data.
