Tinder roll-out 'Super Like' for your loneliness
Everyone knows that, if you want to meet people on Tinder, you 'swipe right' for absolutely everyone and then ignore anyone you don't want to bump your uglies with. However, for some, that might not be enough.
So Tinder has decided to try and liven things up, by introducing a new method of selecting a potential mate - you can now 'Super Like' someone.
Basically, this features allow you to show a higher than normal amount of interest in someone when you've stared at their photo and checked to see if they've got any fantastically annoying quotes in the bio section of their profile.
If someone Super Likes you, then you'll be notified of this interest by a blue footer on your admirer’s profile.
"A 'like', or 'Swipe Right' has long served as an anonymous way to express interest in someone, similar to a glance across the room," Tinder CEO Sean Rad said. "Because they’re so limited in number, a 'Super Like', or a 'swipe up', sends a more powerful signal, conveying an especially high level of interest."
"People like to know that someone finds them special, and we think this will lead to even better matches."
Of course, it won't take long for people to try and Super Like absolutely everyone they stumble across on the app and simply ignore anyone they don't actually fancy. However, users will only have a certain amount of Super Likes to use in a day, which means you'll have to be a bit selective. Or not. We don't care.
Tinder have made a video showing off this new feature, complete with super heroes and creepy internet men. Have a look. Good luck with being less lonely. MWAH!
