Tinder wants to set the record on how his platform gives people space and potential matches, so she posted a blog post on the subject today – but she still kept things pretty vague. The company's Elo score was a "hot topic" a few years ago, according to the blog post, but the ranking feature has now been weakened.
The idea behind the Elo score was that Tinder would classify people as attractive. Elo scores are also used to rank chess players. However, the more people selected a person's profile to the right (or "like"), the higher their assigned score. Your card would then be issued to other people with a similar score, keeping the most desirable people interacting. In Tinder, where the profiles are relatively limited, a person's appearance often arouses the desire for a match. Therefore, people speculated that these points allowed hot people to talk to each other and let unwanted low level people revel.
For Tinder, unlike other apps, users only need to enter their age, distance, and gender preferences. It does not look for compatibility like the sister company OkCupid, or offers filters by size, religion, or ethnicity, as with most of the competition.
"Our algorithm is open," says the company. "Today we do not rely on Elo ̵
Tinder adjusts potential matches that a user sees each time someone enters acting on his or her profile says The company is rescheduling the possible match profiles of this user within 24 hours of completing the action. This is as concrete as Tinder in his blog post, but it sounds a lot like Tinder, who relies on something similar to the Gale-Shapley algorithm or the algorithm used by Hinge. This algorithm identifies patterns around likes. If I like one man and another woman on the platform, then she and I may have the same taste. If she likes someone on the platform that I have not seen, Tinder could show me this profile in the hope that I would like it.
Of course, Tinder is also the biggest money-maker in the match group. Therefore, users have the opportunity to completely skip these algorithms when making an in-app purchase. This may be in the form of a "Like" offer in which a card is automatically moved to the top of a person's profile stack (and visually displayed to her or her that she was "Super-Liked") or a profile burst, The Tinder brings with it a profile that is at the top of many other user profile stacks for 30 minutes.
Tinder feels like an app for everyone, in which everyone really exists, but when the platform grows, the profile must be arranged in a specific order, personalized way, or else it would be impossible to find a match. While Elo scores worried many users, the experience of hot people probably did better, and if they were pulled in by the end of Tinder, they would probably have seen people with lower scores. Tinder and all dating apps need to create matches and create appointments so people can stay in touch. There is therefore an incentive to show users other users they may still like today.
