Basic information is gathered and the users' social graph is analyzed.
Candidates who are most likely to be compatible based on geographical location, number of mutual friends, and common interests are then streamed into a list of matches.
Some of the categories you will find include Friendship, Casual Encounters and Personals Services.
Companion apps were being developed by different companies allowing users to, for example, use the user's heart rate to determine which direction to swipe instead of the user swiping with their hands.
The main companion site for Tinder has been Facebook, as Tinder users connect their Facebook profile to their Tinder accounts for verification and profile details.
This feature was released for the US, UK, and Canada.
Using Facebook, Tinder is able to build a user profile with photos that have already been uploaded.
Based on the results of potential candidates, the app allows the user to anonymously like another user by swiping right or pass by swiping left on them.
