What is Tinder?

Tinder is an online dating app which helps users find potential matches or 'dates' based on their geographical proximity.

It does this by locating you using GPS, and then accessing your Facebook page to create a basic profile which consists of your first name, age and your choice of photographs.

Next it searches for potential matches for you, which are nearby.

If you like the look of someone, you simply swipe right to indicate 'like' and if you don't, you swipe left to indicate no.

If it so happens that your 'match' happens to 'like' you, then you can start messaging.
