Tinder is an online application that is used for dating and geosocial networking. Where users swipe “right” to like or “left” to dislike other profiles. Profiles include pictures, a short bio, and a list of that user interests. Tinder uses a “double operating system” where both users must “match” before exchanging messages to each other.
When it comes to tinder everyone has a unique interest in using it. Some really use it to find true love, and some just want to meet and hook up with new people, some people are just having fun and passing their free time because it more sounds like a game by pressing the “keep playing” option. And in all games, we have to make some sort of decision to play that game.
And in tinder, that decision could be whether or not to “unmatch” someone. Reasons for unmatching differ from person to person.
Reasons of unmatch on Tinder could be
- Not wanting someone to be able to send you messages weather
- Clear-up space in cell phone
