The appearance of OkCupid and PlentyOfFish caused some changes. While Match.com relied only on monthly subscriptions, the new platforms were using the income from the ads system. Which caused Match.com to review their monetization and UX strategies.
But the biggest disruption was caused back in 2008 when IOS App Store was introduced for the first time. Since then the era of mobile apps has begun.
The next milestone is when Tinder appeared. The app incubated by IAC and Match Group, and it became one of the most well-known dating apps in the world following a viral launch on college campuses across the US.
