Widely reported Tinder's plan for monetization: https://gigaom.com/2015/03/02/heres-what-the-new-tinder-plus-looks-like/ Should we expect to see companies that lack a direct path to monetization through traditional web app methods (advertising, user information sales, content production and resale) turn to this method?
