• Hinge makes it clear it’s for relationships, not hookups, which puts everybody on the same page. Hinge CEO explains: “It’s like Instagram profiles for dating, and in beta testing, has driven five times the conversations.” • Rather than swiping, you interact with the dater’s profile content directly.
Compared to Match, which was created in 1995, Hinge is a new kid on the block.
Not only does Match have history on its side, but it also has the numbers: more than 30 million members and more first dates, second dates, relationships, and marriages than any of its competitors.
Your Story includes six photos and three answers to Hinge’s questions, and there are clearly labeled icons for everything such as a speech bubble for sending messages, a pencil for editing your Story, and an eye for hiding and showing certain pieces of information.
We’re fans of Hinge, and really the only complaints we could find about it is some people didn’t like when they were given matches they already had.
Worth the space on your phone to add to your dating arsenal?
A preferred membership will also give you access to the Hinge Insiders, who will share “data-driven insights, profile optimization advice, tips to engage in the best conversation, what prompts and photos perform well on the app, and anything else.” Hinge has a lot going on in the looks department, too.
The interface is clean and intuitive, especially if you’ve used other dating apps before.
You must have a Facebook account because that’s what the app uses to fill out your profile (aka Hinge Story).
Hinge also uses your Facebook information to send you matches based on your friends of friends.
