Tinder, a dating app is fast turning into a location-based social search app that's is making news, both good and bad! The good part is that 32% of the app users who get a chance to swipe right 32% are women. (Swiping a person's profile picture to the right on the mobile screen, allows a user to express an interest in the profile. If two users mutually swipe right, the app considers it a match, allowing them to chat with each other.).
The point I am trying to make here is that Tinder allows women to check out random men and choose whoever they like by swiping right; without feeling embarrassed or being misunderstood! Imagine, how that could impact the social dynamics in a country like India, where a mere smile from a woman is a welcoming sexual invite by default.Without sounding like a strong feminist and more so about a dating app I have to say that Tinder is one digital platform that is allowing women to check out strangers, swipe right and connect with men without being judged as characterless. Much like the selfie trend, Tinder could change the way women express their appreciation for men, allowing them to express their views more openly without implying an invite to sexual advances or stalking.
I have heard and read enough about how social apps have revolutionized the way people connect, interact, and network notwithstanding, the lateral uses that come along the way. What I see in future is a growing number of female population that uses Tinder.
The way I see it, this app is clearly going to have a huge impact on the dynamics of human interaction in the coming future. Signing off amidst hope that the swipe right feature turns into a real world "Swipe right for women" revolution.
