What is new in dating
The Tinder app no longer requires you to have a Facebook account, but you do have to be older than 18.
Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo).
Dating apps kind of suck — just ask anyone who’s ever used one — but in an age increasingly dominated by screens, both large and small, there’s no better way to boost your chances in your quest for fun or love.
As successful as it is at forming long-distance relationships and successful marriages, Tinder has long been accused of changing dating into some form of hookup game.
But it’s the king of the dating hill for a reason and the first port-of-call for many daters.
You can also link Tinder to your Instagram account, and include info about your employer and/or school. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person and Facebook friends you share (if you’re logged in through your Facebook account).
Discovery settings allow other users to find you if desired and set a few preferences regarding who you see. You can also choose to swipe right (to like them), left (to pass), or up if you want to use one of your precious “super likes” to show them you really like them.
