Using Facebook, Tinder is able to build a user profile with photos that have already been uploaded.
Basic information is gathered and the users' social graph is analyzed.
After transitioning from the clicking function Tinder initially used, Tinder became the first "swipe app", now a term to describe various apps that use swiping left or right to control what content the user sees in a browsing fashion.
The average user would generally spend about an hour and a half on the app each day.
The app notifies the user if they have been Super Liked with a blue border that surrounds the profile of the person who Super Liked them.
It then allows the user to either swipe right or left.
Users also have the option to have this displayed on their profile or not.
This feature was released for the US, UK, and Canada.
