Tinder runs through the user's Facebook profile, transposing five pictures, age, mutual friends, and the 'about' section, Stuff.co.nz reported.
Then, the app displays users of the desirable gender or genders from within the chosen geographic radius using GPS.
On the basis of their information, one can decide whether they see a future, or an evening, with that person, tapping a green heart if you do or red X if you don't.
If two users 'like' each other, Tinder declares a 'match' and a private forum is opened for them, where the pair can flirt, exchange info or arrange a date.
Tinder avoids awkward rejections and you are notified only if someone likes you when you are matched.
