Excitement Bubbles Up in College Students with the Announcement of Tinder U

Singles be ready to mingle because Tinder, a famous online dating site, has announced that it will bring a new matchmaking service only to students. Many of you might be aware of the services that Tinder provides. It allows users to like or dislike somebody by swiping right or left. If both parties swipe right to each other’s profile pictures, you both get to chat with each other.

This app was first introduced in the year 2012. Within a span of two years, it started registering 1 billion swipes a day, and the app has turned out be the topmost choice among singles. Currently, Tinder has introduced a new service for university students to find a perfect match for themselves. The new app will be called Tinder U. Looking at the popularity of Tinder, it will indeed have a strong user base on the launch of Tinder U. According to a press release, this app will mainly aim for the students between the age range of 18 to 24.

The workings of Tinder U will not differ much from its parent app Tinder. If you are not aware, I must say, the app will provide you with the facility of making friends. More importantly, the app will be designed to make students’ college life even more interesting. This app will want you to register using your college email address that ends with ‘.edu’ so that it will try to connect as many students as possible from the same or other college campuses, then students would be able to connect easily with each other using Tinder U.

Although Tinder has just announced the service, it is unclear when exactly the service will be launched. Nevertheless, this service will be first offered to iOS devices non-profit schools based in the US. The service will be integrated with the main app. If students want to stop using Tinder U services after leaving the campus, they can switch back to the traditional app whenever they want.
