What is Tinder?

Tinder is a geosocial networking and online dating app. Users swipe right to like or swipe left to hate other users profiles on Tinder, which feature a photo, a brief bio, and a list of their interests.

The History of Tinder

Tinder, Inc. is a company that makes dating apps. Tinder was established by Sean Rad in 2012 at a hackathon held at Hatch Labs in West Hollywood. By 2014, Tinder had surpassed one billion daily swipes and users were logging onto the app an average of 11 times each day.




According to the Tinder Business Model, accessibility is critical. The software displays contacts based on the user’s current location. Because the app must constantly fetch contacts based on the user’s location, geolocation is critical to the app’s entire functionality.


Search functionality based on filters

Tinder has a number of useful features, including the ability to customize your search by filtering by age, gender, and distance. The geographic parameters can only be set to 10 miles in the free version.



Swipe is the most crucial Tinder function out of all of them. It’s known as Tinder’s UVP (Unique Value Proposition) (Unique Value Proposition). It was put in the app to help categorize the candidates. The list of probable matches is initially determined by their geographical location, the total number of mutual friends, and their basic interests. To like someone, swipe right, and to reject someone, swipe left.
