Il fatto che si possano usare delle app per incontrare persone nuove (al di là delle finalità ultime di questi incontri: siano sessuali o meno non importa) ormai non dovrebbe sconvolgere nessuno. È che, come sempre, si ripropongono gli stessi problemi, declinati in forme diverse: Tinder, per esempio, ha una bella gatta da pelare.

Last week, a group of current and former Tinder employees, including co-founders Sean Rad and Justin Mateen, sued Match Group and Match Group parent company IAC for $2 billion over allegations that IAC hid Tinder’s potential for growth in an effort to avoid paying billions of dollars to the startup team.

Tucked into the suit is also the claim that former IAC CEO Greg Blatt, who succeeded Rad as CEO of Tinder, sexually harassed Tinder vice president of marketing and communications Rosette Pambakian, a plaintiff in the case, and that Match allegedly merged Tinder into itself to eliminate stock options without telling any of the employees. It’s a wild lawsuit, and both sides are already fighting ugly. [link]
