If nobody is friends with your friends — or if you've already made your way through all those potential matches — the app starts recommending more tangential connections, like people whose Facebook friends share Facebook friends with you.But the focus is on finding people who are somewhere in your social network.Tinder will tell you if a user happens to have mutual friends with you, but you can't screen to see those users first.Here's a typical screen a Hinge user will see upon opening the app: (Courtesy of Hinge) See the little dots to the left?Tinder got around those problems to a degree by requiring users to "like" each other to match before messaging.That eased the message onslaught, but the relative sparseness of Tinder profiles means you have nothing to go on besides your match's photos and messages to you, which doesn't do much to help you determine whether a stranger's safe to meet at a bar.There are a lot of horrible people in the world, and OKCupid and can't do all that much to keep you from going to dinner with them.
(An exact comparison isn't available, but 52 percent of Tinder users are between 18 and 24.) As of March 2014, the app had made 1 million matches; by August it was up to 3 million, and over 8 million by late October.
You can also pull up Ed W.'s profile for more info: (Courtesy of Hinge) You can see his height, his college and grad school, any friends you share, and a variety of self-descriptive tags that Hinge lets you choose from (including "country clubber," "bookworm," "joker," "smoker," and "midnight toker").
You can also swipe through any photos he's uploaded; users also have the option of adding a short "about me" section.
Hinge takes a middle ground: you don't have to answer questions, but you do get to include more information about yourself. While you can specify that you want people close to you, there are limits; whereas Tinder lets you look for users within one mile of you, the lowest Hinge goes is 10 miles.
The app also doesn't automatically update when you change locations.
That's a pretty rosy assessment, but the analogy is not all wrong.
