What is Tinder?
Tinder is a free dating app that you can download for your phone, desktop, and tablet. The app has two different communities – one for 18+ and one for young teens aged 13-17.
When you set up a profile, Tinder automatically picks up information based on your Facebook profile, including photos, date of birth, and gender.
Once your profile is set up, Tinder will provide you with a list of relevant matches based on your profile, interests, mutual friends on Facebook, location, gender and age range selected.
You can then swipe right to match with another user, tap their image to see more, or swipe left to continue viewing potential matches.
