The coronavirus outbreak and lockdown conditions have brought mixed fortunes to online-dating platforms like Tinder, according to its chief executive Elie Seidman.

On the one hand, user engagement is up, a trend other dating apps have reported too.

Tinder users made 3 billion swipes worldwide on Sunday 29 March, the most the app has ever recorded in a single day. In the UK, daily conversations rose by 12% between mid-February and the end of March.

There has been a "dramatic shift" in behaviour metrics which are normally stable, says Mr Seidman.

However, the economic impact of lockdown means people have less money to spend.
