I found an interesting report from the Pew Internet & American Life Project website.It breaks down the American population by generation and shows what percentage of them are online and what percentage each generation performs certain online activities.If that user also swiped you right, then you get matched up and are free to talk. Well, things get a little less simple when you consider who's on Tinder right now.While there are plenty of twenty-, thirty- and forty-somethings on the app, there has been a reported rise of teenagers using the app.
For those singles who are seeking a quick, easy way to meet potential partners but don't want to jump through all the hoops of OKCupid or a paid dating service, Tinder is a great option.
In fact, 7 percent of users are between 13 and 17, and that's ... That demographic even outnumbers the 35 to 44-year-olds, who make up just 6.5 percent of users.
The primary user base is still 18 to 24-year-olds (who previously made up 90 percent, but now are at just 51 percent), but it is still unnerving to know that a bunch of high school and even middle school students are using an app to hookup with one another.
Online dating is most popular among men and women ages 25 to 34.
Nearly a quarter of them have used online dating sites, compared with just 10 percent of people in the 18 to 24 age group.
