In July 2013, 65% of all online daters were using desktop in some capacity during their search for love, with the remaining 35% of online daters being of the “mobile-only” variety.

Perhaps most interestingly though, Tinder has vaulted ahead of some of its competitors in recent months to claim the #3 position in mobile with 3.6 million visitors – up a whopping 1,400% in the past year. It probably has to do with the fact that it courted an audience – younger Millennials – which had previously been swept away from the category with the social media tide.
