Rad has also stated that Tinder filled a gap for social sites for meeting strangers, rather than connecting with people a user already knows.
By May 2013, Tinder was one of the top 25 social networking apps available on the web based on frequency of use and number of users.
The two later attended USC together and entered the Internet entrepreneurship field.
Tinder says that Super Likes makes it three times as likely for users to find a match.
Tinder is a location-based social search mobile app that allows users to like (swipe right) or dislike (swipe left) other users, and allows users to chat if both parties swiped to the right (a match).
The app can often be used as a hookup app, although searching for the hashtag "#tindersuccessstory" reveals many weddings and engagements can come from using the app as well.
Information available to the users is based on pictures from Facebook, a short bio that users write themselves, along with linking Instagram and Spotify account.
Tinder is among the first "swiping apps", whose users employ a swiping motion to choose photos of other users, swiping right for potentially good matches and swiping left on a photo to move to the next one.
Chatting on Tinder is only available between two users that have swiped right on one another's photos.
