If two users like each other it then results in a "match" and they are able to chat within the app.
In March 2015, Tinder announced the public release of its paid service, Tinder Plus, a feature allowing unlimited matches, whereas the free Tinder app limits the number of right swipes in a 12-hour period.
However, to get to those 12 million matches, users collectively make around 1 billion swipes per day. As of June 2016, If a user of Tinder who is below the age of 18 attempts to use the app, they are met with cards on their deck stating that Tinder is no longer usable by anyone under 18, and that the Tinder team is developing a new app especially for their age group.
By May 2013, Tinder was one of the top 25 social networking apps available on the web based on frequency of use and number of users.Candidates who are most likely to be compatible based on geographical location, number of mutual friends, and common interests are then streamed into a list of matches.Based on the results of potential candidates, the app allows the user to anonymously like another user by swiping right or pass by swiping left on them.Chatting on Tinder is only available between two users that have swiped right on one another's photos.The selections a user makes are not known to other users, unless two individuals swipe right on each other's profiles.
