Marrying technology and searching for a soul mate, do you like it? The developers took the opportunity and created a dating site in the form of an app: Tinder. It is also the most popular dating site in France, with several million active users per week. The French Dating Federation (FFDA) has just published a study on platform usage across 96 French urban departments during 2021. Against all odds, Palme d’or doesn’t go to a big city.

Tinder, what is this?

It is a social network that specializes in dating and romantic relationships. It is also available in the mobile app version for Android and iOS. Tinder is owned by Match Group, the world’s leading dating company.

The app is free, which means it’s free to download. Tinder also provides free basic features to users. If they want more features, they should subscribe to the premium, and therefore paid, packages.

Tinder is the most downloaded app in the world. Recorded data shows that the network generates 1.6 billion passes per day. It is this notoriety that made its creator a paltry $1.65 billion in global trading volume.

Tinder Features

To ensure more immersion for its users, Tinder regularly publishes new features. Among the highlights of 2021 we note the following:

  • The “Explore” function: allows you to emphasize the social aspect, by finding users according to their centers of interest.
  • Add a video: subscribers of the platform can upload a presentation of themselves in a video format. This ensures more interests for profile visitors.
  • Speed ​​Chat feature: It simulates the concept of speed dating, allowing users to interact briefly in a speed dating mode via the app.

FFDA: Study and Purpose

Fédération Française de Dating is a platform that aims to measure the use of dating sites across France. It focuses specifically on Tinder, the mobile application most used by the French.

That is why it has studied the classification of French departments according to the rate of download and use of the service. It is implemented in partnership with stat-rencontres.fr and according to the data download on iOS and Google Play.

The results were surprising. Not only do we notice how important Tinder is to French society, but rural areas are the ones with the most users.

Here are some key numbers about Tinder in France:

  • Tinder records 1.74 million active visitors in France. If this equates to 2.6% of the French population.
  • French subscribers connect to the platform 6.8 times on average per month.
  • The French are more active than the French: 64% of men versus 36% of women.
  • According to the profiles on Tinder, the age range of the French on the platform is between 25-40 years old.

Most Active Sections

To everyone’s surprise, it’s not the city with the highest number of Tinder subscribers. According to an FFDA study, the most active section of the dating network is rural: Finistère. It alone gathers around 4.33% of its population on the platform.

It doesn’t stop there. In second place is the Hughes Pyrenees, with 3.98% of its population congregating on Tinder. In third place comes Hot Vienne with 3.94%.

Why do rural districts prevail over big cities? According to an FFDA study, residents of large cities have several alternatives to meeting online. We especially consider using other platforms such as Happn, Hily, Fruitz or Bumble. Add to this the ease of traffic and the short distance between cities, allowing their residents to meet in real life.

The dominance of the rural area in terms of Tinder usage mainly lies in the ease of accessing the app in the mentioned regions. Thanks to the search area selection feature, users in these areas can extend it to several tens of kilometers. This increases the chances of a “match”, even when they are far from each other.

Least Active Sections

A rural administration also retains the comfort of an urban area that’s less visible on Tinder. This is Belfort, where only 1.17% of its residents are registered on the platform. In front of it is Eure et Loire, with only 1.37% of its population. In the penultimate position is Aisen, with 1.43% of its population registered on Tinder.
