Rolling up at a bar and meeting your soulmate may still be possible, but the rise of online dating apps indicates it’s an increasingly less likely avenue to find love — particularly for Generation Z, with 18-25 year olds making up half of Tinder’s user base. Online dating apps including Tinder, OKCupid, Match, Hinge and Bumble are predicted to reach revenues of more than $649 million by 2023, and more than half of the public knows someone who has used a dating app. The launch of Facebook Dating shows that social media is getting in on the dating app game, and marketers can capitalize on the comfort audiences feel with dating apps through partnerships and celebrity endorsements.
