Hinge, which borrows most of its interface from Tinder, takes this one step further – you can see people with whom you share a mutual friend.
Another difference: Instead of an infinite stream of users, you only get a certain number per day. If someone is theoretically close to you in a network of friends and you haven’t met them yet, there might be a good reason why.
Once you’ve swiped through them all, you’ve got to wait another 24 hours for the next batch. The second has to do with Hinge’s profile – or lack thereof.
(Like a pyramid scheme, you get better rewards – in this case, more matches per day – the more friends you have using the app.) Born out of technological necessity (in the early stages, most users only had a few friends-of-friends using the app) this limiting factor goes against the general trend of dating apps – and of the infinite stream of the web itself. Like Tinder, Hinge connects through Facebook, but it takes this connection a step further.
Whether on purpose or not, Hinge has eliminated one of the downsides of online dating, that sense that, in a bottomless ocean, there is always a better, prettier fish to be found. Your only pictures are your Facebook profile pictures.
Still, this reporter has not yet met anyone who has ever gone on a Hinge date. The first has to do with the social minefield that comes from a dating pool only made up of one’s friends-of-friends. Your only interests are the Facebook pages you Like.
Due to this feature, Tinder is succeeding with women turned off by traditional dating sites.
While a recent article detailed all the ways people are using the app for casual sex, the first Tinder date this reporter went on was a perfectly G-rated evening with hot chocolate in a park.
The lack of profiles on Tinder turns out to be its most salient feature.
