Described by some news outlets as “the next Facebook,” it has made the concept of both mobile and online dating more socially acceptable.
Part of the reason for this according to founder Justin Mateen, is that mobile phones – and smartphones in particular - have become so ubiquitous.
The app is free to download, and only takes a few seconds to install. Photos are automatically pulled from your Facebook profile pictures (the app allows you to delete whatever you don’t want available).
Or, you can click the plus sign on the top right of your Profile page to check your phone, Instagram, or album photos from Facebook for other pictures to include.
Investors be warned, this is a company that does NOT have its act together. I was on Tinder last year for only a week until I met this wonderful man. I think they are just in it for a bit of ego stroking!! This is a much better way to hookup than a bar where there are too many other distractions. If you are decent looking and can talk the talk you will not be disappointed.i tried Tinder for 3 months, it was probably the most wasted 3 months of 2015 :/ i think i did show interest in at least 1000 females, even the ones i normally would not, i know im not the best looking guy in the world but no matches at all for 3 months and over 1000 females liked, you can imagine the dissapointment i had when a friend of mine had tinder for 2 days and already had 3 matches, the funny part is every one i know does not at all understand how he ever got rid of his virginity, even the female friends don`t get it, i have also tried Badoo and at least i did get matches there but no one will ever respond to Messages, the one that did was from columbia saying she was from my country and she could not even speak my laguage and her English was worse then a swedish kid in kindergarden trying to speak Norwegian :/ so all in all don`t install Tinder it`s just not doing anything for you unless you are just bored and want to check out Girls you would never ever meet in real life...
We stayed together for 7 months and we just broke up the other day. I downloaded the app, and then began my likes and dislikes.
“Mobile phones have become an extension of who we are,” he tells The Huffington Post.
“They are arguably the most intimate possession that we have.” Tinder offers a simple way to meet people online.
I couldn't be bothered though, since you can't filter out single moms and smokers, seems pretty limited.
Tinder customer service was no help whatsoever, told me to check my mobile connection or try again later. I have been using Tinder for the last year and have met many girls through it from my college.
I'm telling you, a lot of people use social media to meet. I promise you, You will find your significant other. All my returns came back as beautiful females, and they were all prostitutes selling on line "cam sex. I will keep trying to date but I will give up soon and move on.
I know I found my right man, the timing is just off right now. To much swiping and no matches for me so I never actually talked to anyone on the stupid app. Women have like 100 matches per day so if they match you it's pot luck and even so and you message them they hardly ever reply or they may uninstall the app so you automatically un-match'. Also the amount of scam and spam on there is ridiculous ! Horrible customer service, app has lots of glitches. I have not had any luck with this and I have not met anyone on tinder.
