If you and someone have both swiped right on one another, a screen will appear showing that you’ve matched and inviting you to send them a message.
You also have to tap on a user’s small image to see a larger version and the person’s profile, which is simply too large for an app.
It might work on a dating website where that much information would presumably be read on a larger screen, but it’s overkill on an app, and the amount of scrolling required makes it annoying to access.
Sadly, you also will only be able to see the five most recent visitors to your profile unless you pay for an upgrade and — worst of all — anyone can message you. Download now from: i Tunes Google Play Coffee Meets Bagel is another dating app that piggybacks on Facebook.
Once you’ve set up your profile and input your preferences, it will send you one “bagel” a day, which is essentially the profile of a potential match.
If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.
You can like people or message them in a similar fashion to Tinder, but messaging is your better bet: Users can see who has liked them only if they have upgraded to “A-list” status.

You create a username and fill out a very long profile, which you can link to your Instagram account if you choose (which is, admittedly, almost Facebook).
First off, Tinder the app requires you to have a Facebook account in order to enable it, and you have to be over 18.
Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo).
You can also link your Tinder account to your Instagram, and include info about your employer and school. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person and Facebook friends you share (if any).
