Added: 26.03.2019 17:21 | 7 views | 0 comments

When social media began to take off a decade (or so) ago, it was only a matter of time before some insightful developer would mix the convenience and addictive nature of socializing online with a dating platform. There is a handful of dating apps on the market today, but arguably, the most famous and widespread is Tinder, which originally launched back in 2012.
