As vague as the statement may be, there are at least two relatively clearly formulated points that seem to be receiving more attention in the Tinder algorithm:
This means that you will be shown more profiles while you are active than during the time you are not active.
The spatial proximity to other users while you swipe plays a bigger role with the new Tinder algorithm.
This means that you prefer to see profiles that are in your immediate vicinity. And your profile is also displayed with priority to the women profiles who are near you while they are swiping.
“Wow, hold on! The most important factor with which you can improve your match potential on Tinder is – Warning! – the active use of the app.
We prioritize potential matches that are active and active at the same time. We don’t want to waste your time showing you profiles of inactive users. We want you to chat with each other and meet offline. And there is nothing better than forming a match and being able to chat straight away. By using the app, you are right in the middle, see more profiles and can form more matches. This is the most important part of our algorithm – and it is up to you whether you are active or not.
So if you use the Tinder app it will help us pick better potential matches for you. That is the basics of algorithms. “
It may be that the new Tinder algorithm puts even more emphasis on the activity factor, but basically that was extremely important with the old system as well.
Because the longer you were inactive, the further you slipped back in the pile of profiles and were only shown to the women when they were swiping.
As a result, if you come back after 2 weeks of inactivity, you are in the same position as if you had been online regularly the entire time.
So yes, it may well be that you get more matches when you’re active. But to say that it is the deciding factor is a bit misleading.
For this there MUST continue to be a system that shows you “suitable” profiles. And if the activity on the app were the decisive factor, then you would not be shown suitable profiles, just any.
According to Tinder, the physical proximity to your potential matches now plays a bigger role than before.
“Proximity is an important factor; it’s always funny when you meet someone from your area because you’re part of a community.
