We asked 10 Tinder users about the Match IPO -- here's what they had to say

Match Group, the IAC-owned company whose stable of businesses includes Tinder and OkCupid, went public on Thursday, after pricing its initial public offering at $US12 per share on Wednesday.

Shares jumped as much as 24 per cent on Thursday, valuing the company at $US3.57 billion.

It’s been an eventful week for Tinder, one of Match Group’s subsidiaries. Earlier this week in an interview with the Evening Standard, Tinder CEO Sean Rad gave a cringe-worthy interview, sparking his parent company, Match Group, to file an update about it with the SEC.

But what do Tinder’s users think of its parent company’s IPO? We decided to jump into the app and see for ourselves. We were pleasantly surprised by some of the thoughtful answers we received.

'I think they need to get rid of the CEO bad image, hbu?'
