Yubo is Tinder in the teen world

Yubo was launched in France in 2015 under the name Yellow and was renamed Yubo in 2018.

The application is rapidly gaining popularity in the United States and many other countries due to Covid-19.

At the moment, the application has 25 million users worldwide, of which about 60% are from the USA.

Pro tip: What you can do is to either copy and use it for other countries. Or adapt it to your niche, instead of teens. With more features and valuable offers.

CHOICE, an Australian consumer control group, has released data on Tinder’s pricing model

The highlight was the fact that the premium subscription for seniors is more expensive.

The study was conducted in the «mystery shop» format and involved 60 people of different ages and genders. As a result of this experiment, the cheapest monthly membership fee was $ 6.99, it was offered to women under 30. For gay people of the same age, the price was $ 7.99 – $ 15.10 per month.

The most expensive users were heterosexual men over 50, whose cost was $ 34.37.
