Singapore dating app
However, Tinder’s marketing efforts in India to change dating norms may have made it easier for new entrants to grow quickly as well.
For instance, Flirty Desires and Hookups Finder have edged closer and closer since the beginning of the year.
Match is in turn controlled by IAC, who owns 82.5% of Match.
They are both trading in the low teens multiple of EBITDA in 2017.
Match Group tried to penetrate the Japanese market by acquiring Pairs which certainly has been successful.
For instance, Tinder ranked as the 93rd most downloaded app in Singapore in April on average, while the runner-up Paktor, founded in Singapore, placed at 299th.
In the Western world, Tinder holds the undisputed top rank for lifestyle apps and even in the overall rankings.
In Asia, Tinder is also the most popular dating app in some countries, but have lost to regional upstarts in others.
Not only that, one could easily glean from Instagram and Snapchat's example that Tinder could always copy Beetalk's features should it prove to be beneficial.
Despite its success in the region, Tinder has not been successful in markets like Korea, Japan and China that have been traditionally closed-off for Western companies.
The all-in-one feature of the app may be why more people are using Beetalk.
