However, I've also seen a trend of people using it like a smartphone game.
Profiles are no longer regarded as real people with feelings, but rather are treated like pieces of candy you swipe to “win.”Tinder and many of the other swiping apps, such as Bumble and JSwipe, activate the reward center of the brain.
