Tinder do's and don'ts from a dating-app ghostwriter

Tinder is borrowing one of the most important features on Bumble.

On Tinder, women will decide when to enable the feature.

For some women, online dating may not always be a pleasant experience, especially with the abundance of creeps on the loose.

"When my dad was back on the market after so many years, he chose to try this thing the kids call 'online dating.' Except he wasn't really sure how men on it are supposed to behave, so he created a fake woman's account to pick up tips".

Tinder has a solution. That means enabling it would prevent prospective dates - men only, for now - from sending them a message. "Giving people the choice versus telling people how to engage is the big difference".

Women may turn the feature on or off, if so they choose. Meanwhile, the company's move towards this feature is in direct response to curtailing bad behaviour, negative behaviour, unwanted advances and inappropriate communication, according to Ginsberg.

Tinder is taking a page from Bumble's book with plans to launch a new option that gives women more control over which men message them.

Bumble incorporates the use of swipe-to-Like model-famous on Tinder for single people to connect-but it was incorporated with a twist which was that the women only had the power to start a connection once two people are in mutual likeness with each other on the social platform.

Mandy Ginsberg-the CEO of Match Group told that the Tinder setting is not any reaction or something to any competitor or whatsoever.

Wolfe Herd released a statement on Wednesday which was in support of the addition in Tinder's app and said that Bumble appraises any firm that makes business decisions for empowering women.

Tinder users are reportedly setting their locations to try and match with athletes at the Olympic Village in PyeongChang, according to Tinder data reported by Mashable.
