Online dating for under 18 s
Based on the results of potential candidates, the app allows the user to anonymously like another user by swiping right or pass by swiping left on them.
If two users like each other it then results in a "match" and they are able to chat within the app.
As of October 2014, the app was processing over one billion swipes per day, producing about twelve million matches per day.
The average user would generally spend about an hour and a half on the app each day.
Users also have the option to have this displayed on their profile or not.
This feature was released for the US, UK, and Canada. Using Facebook, Tinder is able to build a user profile with photos that have already been uploaded.
Tinder says that Super Likes makes it three times as likely for users to find a match.
Chatting on Tinder is only available between two users that have swiped right on one another's photos.Rad has stated that the impetus for the app was his observation that "no matter who you are, you feel more comfortable approaching somebody if you know they want you to approach them." He believed that a "double opt-in" system could be created to potentially alleviate that stress.Rad has also stated that Tinder filled a gap for social sites for meeting strangers, rather than connecting with people a user already knows.By May 2013, Tinder was one of the top 25 social networking apps available on the web based on frequency of use and number of users.Initially, instead of a swiping motion, users would click on either a green "heart" or red "X" to select or move on from the photos shown.
