Tinder is currently the leading dating application in the market, both in Mexico and other countries.
Since the beginning of 2023, there have already been around 20,000 layoffs in the technology sector, worldwide.
Companies like Alphabet, Meta, Amazon, Microsoft, Spotify, Philips, Twitter, and Uber have also laid off a significant portion of their employees.
Tinder adds to the mass layoffs and, during a conference, the company announced that it will lay off 8 percent of its employees.
It seemed that 2023 would arrive with great optimism on the part of a large number of people and workers, especially after a period in which, as a result of the pandemic and its effects, the scenario did not look good, quite the opposite. .
Today, finally, it seems that little by little we are saying goodbye to one of the most complex periods in the history of humanity. In Mexico, to give an example, data from the health authorities detail that more than seven million positive cases have accumulated since the start of the pandemic, of which there are 330,000 deaths..
On the other hand, technology became something more than a tool, an ally that helped to face the various complexities of the health emergency and, in this sense, the growth of the workforce in this sector was even natural.
Nevertheless, At the beginning of 2023, according to official data, there are already around 20,000 layoffs in the technology sector, worldwidea figure that, little by little, approaches more than 50,000 layoffs in a single month, which occurred in November 2022.
Within the list of Firms that are succumbing to this crisis include Alphabet, Meta, Amazon, Microsoft, Spotify, Philips, Twitter, Uberamong others, a fact that has set off alarm bells throughout the world and everything indicates that layoffs will continue to occur.
Data from the specialized website layoffs.fyi point out that the United States is the country where, mainly, this series of massive layoffs has occurred in large companies, among which are Meta, Amazon, Twitter, Salesforce, among others.
Tinder cancels “match” with employees; will lay off 8% of its staff
Launched in 2011, Tinder reached Internet users’ devices as a new way of socializing where the screen of a smartphone practically became the meeting point.
In a scenario in which flirt or dating apps accumulated approximately 400 million users, Tinder added 78 million downloads worldwidecontext in which platforms such as Bumble, OkCupid, Badoo represent an alternative to Tinder.
Now, despite the popularity of Tinder, it has been announced that the company will lay off 8 percent of its workforce, thus joining the list of companies facing a major crisis.
“We expect to reduce our global headcount by approximately 8 percent”, Match Group CFO Gary Swidler announced during a conference call.
Undoubtedly, what Swidler expressed has to do with a process in which companies are experiencing a severe crisis. In fact, this is how Microsoft let it be seen when it announced layoffs in its workforce: “we are living in times of significant change. These are the kinds of tough decisions we’ve made over our 47-year history to remain a significant company in this industry that doesn’t forgive anyone who doesn’t adapt to platform changes.”
