I thought it would be interesting to break out a subset of my big list of social media and app user totals that focuses on online dating sites and apps. Please remember that this is a very rapidly changing segment of the industry and some of these companies are more forthcoming with their user stats than others, so it may not be perfect. That said, it should give you an idea of the scope of the market and what all the commotion is about.
This online dating user total list is a subset of my gigantic user total list. The user total list started out modestly back in 2011 and grew very quickly. As digital infiltrates almost every aspect of our daily lives, things become more measurable. It began with a simple listing of how many people use some of the obvious social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, Instagram, Pinterest, Skype, YouTube, WhatsApp, VK.com, Odnoklassniki, etc; then grew to include digital services like Amazon, Google, eBay, Netflix, Spotify and Pandora; then the focus turned to APAC social and digital properties like Alibaba, Weibo, WeChat, JD.com, LINE and Momo. The full list now includes close to 1,100 listings and more are added almost weekly. It can be purchased as a downloadable pdf at the end of this post.
Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. It is also difficult, at times, to distinguish monthly users from total user accounts. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
