But the sites that target a focused subset of daters find a rich market.
Many of Tinder’s users don’t realize that it is owned by Match; the app came from its R&D lab and launched under Yagan’s guidance.
The website, WASP Love, bills itself as a place for people who identify with various forms of white supremacy—”Traditional Christian, white nationalism, heritage, preservation, Quiverfull, Confederate, Southern Nationalist, Christian Identity, Kinism, alt-right”—to find like-minded mates for “dating, courtship [and] marriage.” “Finally!

It makes sense, then, that only a year and a half after buying Ok Cupid for some million, IAC (iaci) made Yagan CEO of its entire Match Inc. That means he now oversees not only but also People Media (which comprises a host of smaller, niche dating sites such as Our Time.com, Black People Meet.com, and Loveand Seek.com), Date Hookup.com, and international companies like Meetic and Twoo.
That entire segment contributed 3 million of IAC’s 2012 revenue of .8 billion.
