Tinder is the market leader in the UK, it has a membership base that far surpasses any rivals and a very simple and easy to use format. On the downside, it has very few features and is almost entirely a photos based platform. Many people get very excited about Tinder when they first download it, but equally quickly get disenchanted by the superficial nature of the service. Dating experts encourages you to try out this new exciting technology, but we expect that eventually you’ll find more traditional dating sites more useful.
Tinder has an almost limitless numbers of profiles to look at and has more daily users worldwide than most dating sites get in a whole year. So one key advantage of the site is that you really can get access to a great many people. Another, is that nearly everybody has a good selection of photos on their profile. Pictures are downloaded automatically from facebook, where most people can usually find some good ones.
Tinder prides itself on delivering online dating in its purest form and the platform is very very simple and easy to use. Pictures, like button, instant messaging – that is everything.
Tinder was started from the campus of the University of Southern California and won Tech Crunch’s award for ‘best new start’ in 2013. Yes it’s really that young! Today it has – wait for it – 10 million daily users and is available in 24 languages. To put these figures into context it's worth noting that there are many major online dating sites that have been trading for the best part of a decade and failed to reach 10 million members in that period of time. Yes, Tinder is huge!
Of course one of the other big advantages about Tinder is that it is totally free! There is no upgrade. There are no additional features. Once you download the app, you have the whole service at your fingertips.
