Facebook Twitter Pinterest Instagram. Tinder is unquestionably the hottest dating app of the moment, announcing that it has made 1 billion matches based upon liking the profile pictures of potential matches. Here's how it works: Users show their interest in a match by simply swiping right if they like what they see or left to pass on a dud. If two users both swipe right on each other -- ding ding, we have a match. They can now message each other and take their Tindering to the next level. Unlike traditional dating sites like Match or OkCupid that find matches based on lengthy profiles and filling out questionnaires about your favorite food, movie and book yawn , Tinder is completely photo-based. In this digital meat market, where women have a smorgasbord of men to choose from, you need to wow her -- and fast.

Well, for a week or so anyway.
