SURVEY: 30% Of Tinder Users Are Married
Tinder shot to fame as a dating app for tech-savvy single people. Except, as it turns out, a big chunk of its users may not be single after all. That's according to the research firm GlobalWebIndex (GWI), which released some figures on Tinder from its latest survey of more than 47,000 internet users around the world that suggest the app has a wider demographic. In fact, the research claims that 30% of Tinder users surveyed are married, while another 12% are in a relationship. Fifty-four percent classed themselves as single, while 3% were divorced or widowed. Tinder may also be a digital stomping ground for married men, judging by GWI's claim that 62% of its users are male and 38% female. The research also shows, unsurprisingly, that Tinder's users are a relatively young crowd, with 38% aged between 16 and 24, and 45% between 25 and 34. Thirteen percent are aged 35 to 44, 3% are 45 to 54, and 1% are 55 to 64 — though if reports in late 2014 that Tinder had 50 million active users were true, that would still indicate half a million people in that oldest age category surveyed.What percentage of Grindr users are not single?
