Tinder is free dating app that connects you with people nearby with your same likes and interests. It is as simple as anonymously swiping right if you like the other person, or swiping left if you do not. What makes this dating app different from others is that it will not consume your time filling out unnecessary information about your personality, what you expect from the site, etc. Although it is mandatory to sync Tinder with your Facebook account, do not be scared, it won’t post anything to your wall without your permission.

One of the main “problems” users say Tinder faces, is the fact that people tend to choose group photos for their profiles, making difficult to guess who you are from all those appearing in the picture. As a piece of advice, we'll just tell you that if you want to be recognized, you better use photos in which you are alone!
How to use this application
The first thing you should do after the download and setup process of Tinder is login with you Facebook account. Tinder will automatically detect your name and age and will select some photos and preferences. It will create your Tinder profile with this data. Later, it’s time to find people near you: Tinder scans your location and narrows the results according to the distance range, first; and according to age and type, later.
Once these filters have been applied, you will see a list of the possible candidates, with their names, ages, common interests, some photos…it even tells you if you share any friends! After the suggestion list has been displayed, it is time to swipe right if you like the person, or swipe left to permanently eliminate him/her. Be cautious because after swiping ‘no’ as there is no way to go back! A “match” takes place when two people swipe the other one to the right: a separate window opens and a chat appears for you both to start a conversation. Do not worry if you suddenly find you no longer want to talk with the other person, you can feel free to block the chat at any time and continue swiping.
