Here’s everything else you need to know about Tinder and how to maximise it.
Research shows that there are 50 million active users on Tinder who check their accounts 11 times per day and spend an average of 90 minutes per day on the app.
Tinder then finds you potential matches near your location (you can narrow it down by age and distance, too) and if they take your fancy, you swipe right to ‘like’ them. If they’ve also ‘liked’ you – then bingo, it’s a match and you can start messaging. You need a Facebook profile to be able to use the app. Thanks to an update, we have Tinder Online which you can now use on any device – including your laptop or, dare we say it, work computer.
Though the jury is still out as to whether wearing an AI headset on a virtual first date could be the key to finding true love or the biggest passion killer since halitosis.
These latest Tinder updates come after a long line of game-changing extra functions in the last few years, including the development of Tinder online so that you can literally swipe anywhere.
Greg Blatt, the CEO of Tinder’s parent company and one of the best online dating sites, Match, has announced exciting new features that he promises to ‘blur the lines between the physical and digital worlds for dating.’ After the success of Tinder Gold – which lets you pay to see who swiped right on you – the new features expected to hit Tinder in early 2018 include AI and geolocation functions allowing users to fully immerse themselves into the activities of the people they’ve already been matched with.
He said, ‘Until now, Tinder has basically been a swiping machine – it’s effective and simple but ultimately limited.’ The introduction of Tinder’s AI-assisted dating function is being kept firmly under wraps but it has got everyone talking.
