Social connections are a human need, and these two apps have satisfied them in millions of users. Throughout this article, you will learn why how many people are using them, and if they worth it.
You will see a comparison between Zoosk and Tinder by their features. In the end, you will find a summary of their pros and cons. Let's start.
Number of users
Zoosk and Tinder's users combined are more than the population of 175 countries! Zoosk has over 35 million users and Tinder 50 million.
Why is it relevant? Because the more users a dating app has, the less likely you are to find the same person twice.
Zoosk has a complete search engine that can filter by Age, Location Ratio, Height, Religion, Relationship History, Children, Body Type, Ethnicity, and Education. Tinder doesn't have that many searching filters.
Zoosk's behavioral algorithm
The algorithm is one of the best things about Zoosk. Its behavioral matchmaking system learns about you when you use it. The more you use it, the better it matches.
arrouser and discovery
These features are a thumbs up for both of them because Tinder and Zoosk let you decide if you want to go swiping or liking. In Zoosk's Carousel feature, you swipe with the additional option of maybe instead of yes/no questions.
In Tinder's discovery feature, you can like photos instead of swiping.
Cost, coins, and ads
If we want to talk about money inside these apps, we have to talk about three things:
- Tinder's cost changes according to your age.
- Zoosk has a system of overpriced coins to boost your profile. You can also get them completing daily little tasks.
- Tinder has a lot of annoying advertisement in its free version.
Users by gender
In most of the countries there are slightly more women than men, but this does not happen in all the dating apps. More than 75% of Tinder's users are male, one woman every four men. On the other side, Zoosk's users split among 48% male and 52% female.
You will see how good it is in your case, for example: if you're a girl, you're likely to find a male couple on Tinder, but if you're a guy, it'll be harder because there's more offer.
Which one is the best option to find a serious relationship?
In recent years, Tinder has become a hookup app. Zoosk offers you more options to get to know someone because you'll first get to know yourself with its behavioral algorithm.
Hookup users don't usually pay for a service, and Tinder has a lot of free users. So, that's one of the reasons to pick Zoosk.
In this feature, we swipe both of them right! In Tinder, you can filter by location ratio, and with Zoosk's paid account, you can see Zoosk users around your location. So, these features are great if you do not want to have a long-distance relationship.
Tinder's paid version also allows you to search for people who live in your travel destination. For example, if you are going to travel to Buenos Aires, you can search for a couple before you go there.
