Tinder, launched in 2012, is a social application that facilitates communication between mutually interested users. Users use swipes to the left or right to “like” or “dislike” other users’ photos and possibly correspond with them. The discussion on Tinder is only available between two users who have scanned the photos of each other and who match. Tinder is therefore commonly used as a dating service application. Starting in 2017, Tinder records about 1.6 billion “scans” per day and produces about 26 million matches.
Tinder is available in more than 190 countries around the world, although it is not the most popular dating app. Based in London, Badoo is the best dating app in 21 of the world’s largest countries, according to data published by App Annie on the BBC, with Tinder ranking first.
