In early 2017, Barron’s estimated that Tinder has about 30 million active users and Bumble is close to 10 million.
We tested any with at least a million active users in the US.
It’s impossible to know exactly how many users are active on a given site or app (especially because mobile users aren’t reflected in Alexa data), but we’re definitely in the ballpark.
Even though we received fewer messages compared to other sites, we rated 40 percent “good” — the most out of the seven sites we tested.
That’s in large part because only mutual matches can message each other: both parties have to “swipe right” before they can say hello, which cuts way down on spam.
Bumble offers an experience that’s very similar to Tinder, but with a twist: Women have to start the conversation.
If they don’t, the match will disappear after 24 hours, although you can upgrade to a paid account to keep matches around longer.
