Bumble, Facebook, Tinder, Instagram, Grindr are currently dating apps that are mostly used by people. The technology considers your past behavior and past preferences, your in-app activity and, based on this data, will offer only the most relevant matches. It makes complete sense that our shifting conversation around gender politics has disrupted the way that we are accustomed to dating and, for many, has created confusion and panic as the familiar point of reference is under question. The gene-matching evangelists propose that certain genes connected to your immune system, known as the major histocompatibility complex MHC , govern who you're attracted to. Last year, Tinder introduced Loops, two-second videos used in place of profile pictures that look like Boomerangs, and Badoo added a live-video chat feature you can use to talk to potential dates.
Better machine-learning could tailor your matches to your actions, rather than your stated desires. Some people love talking on the phone. It is a matter of being proactive, embracing discomfort, and thinking, advocating, and taking responsibility for yourself. Us, too. The freemium economy is getting boring and Hinge has proven that you can monetize something else, like the number of daily likes, keeping the core experience identical for everyone.
