Tinder shows you the name, age, picture and short description of people and you can swipe right to choose or left. Now, what Tinder does differently is that it offers varied options to personalise your dating experience.
For example, one can just switch off the discovery of their profile and only keep chatting to the people one has liked.
Needless to say, they are different from social networking platforms because of the fact that they have been specifically designed for dating people.
Similarly, logging in with Linked In or with references only gives you a 15 per cent score.Percentage earned from adding your phone number is 10 per cent.To sum up, the profiles on Tinder are verified; it shows your mutual friends from Facebook and lets you choose people from various town/cities. It’s called the ‘Matchmaking app for singles’ and largely works on matching people based on their interests.Unlike the dating apps that we talked about previously, you don’t necessarily need to reject people, you can like them using the ‘heart’ icon; message them to find out more about them or simply move on to another person by swiping right.Worry not, if you do not want to disclose your location, for there’s Tinder Plus for that. It logged me out on several occasions where there was no net connectivity.
This is a problem for me because I use my smartphone to remain logged in to various social networking platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc and that is the whole purpose of a personalised phone, that you don’t need to log out every time you are not using a particular app.
Additionally, it also asks you to choose your hobbies (at least three) from a series of hashtags such as #Travel Buff, #Artsy, #Foodie or you can add your own.
The verification process may sound tedious, but there’s more to it. Truly Madly assigns percentage to different mediums you log in with.
You can edit age range, height, state or city and the app will stick to your preferences by showing people from only that city or state and of that age, height that you choose.
The app is designed in such a way that you can only see the names of those you choose to select and for the rest, only ‘xxx’ appears instead of name.
The app won’t allow you to start dating unless you have at least a 30 per cent verification score. For example, I tried to create my account with Gmail id, which gave me only 10 per cent score and I could not log in.
