Match Group LLC is a subsidiary of IAC/InterActiveCorp which owns Tinder, OkCupid, Plenty of Fish, Match.
You know, pretty much all the big names in online dating. Since y'all like lists so much:
1. OKCupid has officially been quoted as stating that the site is in actuality a human social experiment.
2. According to science, online dating services do not use valid metrics to match or provide services to their users. Tinder has long since known about the Tinder Bug where no matches are able to be made due to their erroneous code. OkCupid and POF suffered similar bugs.
3. Match Group uses chatbots, fake profiles, and zombie profiles to make it appear like users are actually using it's services. Tinder says it tries to stop the spam yet on all it's platforms the fake profiles and scambots target men too naive to say no.
Tinder sucks if you are a guy. There are so many other men competing that women only respond to roughly 20% of the messages from men. Meanwhile the majority of men maintain a profile that gets ignored and his messages get little to zero response. Often, he's messaging a woman that couldn't be bothered to delete her profile when she stopped using the app so the company is still advertising her profile.
Women online don't want to meet in real life. Any talk of face to face interaction is met with withdrawal or us being ignored again. For the lucky guys who can actually convince her to meet offline, often the date is begat with disappointment. She expects him to pay for everything, she spends the whole date on her phone, she doesn't communicate well, she's shallow, and generally a bad date for the majority of people I've witnessed using online dating. It works for some but 1% of the population does not represent the experiences the rest of us have to deal with.
So not only are these companies monopolizing online data, they aren't providing valid algorithms for matching services, creating an environment for chatbots/fake profiles/zombie profiles to populate their servers, and generally not providing the dating services that they claim to.
