Not Finding Enough Matches on Tinder? Help May Be on the Way
If you use Tinder and have been disappointed with the amount of matches you've been getting on the app, your luck might soon change.
Tinder officials say they are making adjustments to their algorithm that should significantly increase the number of matches that users encounter.
The new updates now take into account things like your work history and, for example, where you went to school.
"We are looking at more data signals and, with machine learning, we are getting smarter at optimizing those signals when we’re looking at relevance for individuals," Tinder CEO Sean Rad told Mashable.
If you use Tinder, you'll also soon see a redesigned messaging center.
These adjustments to the app coincide with the addition of the new "super like" feature, which allows users to highlight someone that they are especially interested in (beyond the typical right swipe).
In a press release, the company noted “more than 10 billion matches have been made” in the three short years of Tinder’s existence. “These matches have led to friends, dates, relationships, and everything in between."
Tinder has also found itself under fire in 2015 for everything from promotion of the new "hook-up culture" to contributing to the proliferation of STDs among millenials.
