Tinder is a location-based social search service application (using Facebook) that facilitates communication between mutually interested users, allowing matched users to chat. The app is commonly used as a dating services app, and has branched out to provide more services, making it more of a general social media application.
Originally incubated inside Hatch Labs, the app was launched in 2012, and by 2014 it was registering about one billion “swipes” per day. Tinder is among the first “swiping apps”, where the user uses a swiping motion to choose between the photos of other users: swiping right for potentially good matches and swiping left on a photo to move to the next one.
