Tinder Launched A New Version For Teenagers

Until a few weeks ago, Online Dating Site Tinder had a separate area for users between 13 and 17 years of age. The app made “match” between the same teenagers, separating them from the adults of the app. And of course, for the child molesters, it was not very difficult to make a false profile to enter that section. After much controversy, it was decided that Tinder Dating, like other dating apps, could only be used by adults.

Spotafriend: the same but different?

“Allowing adolescents to use a dating application with a majority of the adult population is simply a bad idea: they invite themselves to danger. We are delighted to see that Tinder marked that line, and we believe it will make younger users much safer. “

– Benoit Tessier (creator of Spotafriend)

Spot a friend is an application that looks very similar to Tinder but is exclusively for young people between 13 and 19 years old. You slide to the right if you are interested in someone and to the left if you do not. If two people want to meet, the application sends a notification and allows them to chat.

However, the creators of the platform say that it is only for teenagers to find “friends”. Will, they really are more secure in an application with that in Tinder?

Tinder notices your physical appearance, although you may not want to know:

Tinder has been inviting some users to Tinder Select, a secret version of the application that most humans will not be lucky enough to know. According to TechCrunch, the application avoids all ugly and poor users, including only the “elite”. A Tinder only for the most “attractive” people Your select members have supermodels, company CEOs, and other “attractive” people. This version of the application is exclusive for “celebrities and people who are doing very well in Tinder”. The most interesting thing is that it is not an application for older people, so Tinder Select users can change their “range” with the push of a button.

Tinder Select works by invitation, and that inside can only “nominate” a person. Obviously, said “nominee” can not nominate anyone else. As we see, Tinder wants to control who enters this exclusive area of the application, preventing the situation from being uncontrollable. What is clear is that Tinder wanted to choose the most attractive users (with a higher profile rating) and give them an opportunity to get away from the rest of the mortals. Apparently, the version of Tinder Select has a more refined design than what other users know, changing the color orange to blue. They say it has existed for six months, but it is clear that they do not want to expand this exclusive area much more.
