If you ask us, Tinder is one of the most practical and efficient dating app out there. It’s not like other chats where you can only assess the other person based on what they say in the public chat alongside what they chose for a username. Tinder actually lets you see the image of the other person, well at least the one that they chose to upload, and you can only chat with each other if both of you swiped right to the other’s image; swiping right means you like the photo while swiping left means that you want to move on to the next profile.
- Swipe – one of Tinder’s most prominent and well-known features, it’s central to their overall design. The algorithms in the application itself will present the user with a couple of potential matches. In turn they will swipe right if they like the picture and left if they want o see the next one.
- Instagram integration – Tinder has integrated Instagram, so now the users are able access the other’s Instagram profiles; they may be just pictures but you get to know a person more because of it.
- Common connection – one of the features lets two users that match see whether they share mutual friends in Facebook; this is the first degree connection in Tinder. Another is allowing them to see if they have two separate friends that are also friends through their Facebook profile; this is the second degree connection in Tinder.
- Geographical location – a deciding feature is the user’s geographical location, which Tinder base from the one indicated on their Facebook account. Deciding factors not only include the geographical location of course but also the common interest that they share as well as any mutual friends.
