Tinder is Indeed big in Sochi Olympics

The first week of the Winter Olympics 2014 in Sochi is behind us. Early on the dating app Tinder was a big winner of the Olympics in terms of free PR. Thanks to snowboarder Jamie Anderson, who told US Weekly after her gold medal win that "Tinder in the Olympic Village is next level. It's all athletes! In the mountain village it's all athletes. It's hilarious. There are some cuties on there." 

Now we also got official word from the Tinder people that indeed there is a huge usage spike in Sochi. Tinder's Sean Rad told the Wall Street Journal that the app saw a 400% day-over-day increase of new users located in Sochi. The numbers are now in the thousands. Of course the users are not just athletes. In Sochi are now also lots of support personal, media, officials and also sport fans.

An App like Tinder is ideal to hook up at a huge event like this that goes on over weeks. So indeed Tinder in Sochi is "Next Level." If you want to see who is on Tinder in Sochi, check out this Tumblr.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
