HOW TIN­DER WORKS

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - REAL LIVES -

Users down­load the mo­bile app on their iPhone or An­droid smart­phones, and cre­ate a pro­file on the app us­ing their Face­book ac­counts. Each Tin­der pro­file is made up of a max­i­mum of six pho­to­graphs and a bio. Users scroll through po­ten­tial matches within a cer­tain ra­dius and then swipe to the right of their screens if they’re in­ter­ested, or to the left if they’d like to take a pass. If there’s a mu­tual match, you’ll be in­stantly no­ti­fied, and then you can start chat­ting in text mes­sage style, di­rectly through the app. Tin­der re­ports 400 mil­lion matches to date with ap­prox­i­mately four mil­lion new matches per day.
