Tinder s new feature called Smart Photos focuses a Tinder s profile photo. Naturally, everybody wants to choose the photo they think is the best as their profile photo. Therefore, the feature tests a user s chosen pictures and using some in-built algorithm, it decides which photo would get the most attention, and accordingly it automatically pushes a photo to the top.
However, over here there is something to be noted, that is, how Tinder is collecting intricate details through one s swiping pattern and behavior. With millions of users on board, Tinder knows the names that get the most attention, the kind of pictures that get most likes. And with such surveillance, Tinder has joined the bandwagon of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter which as mentioned above, collect data to study users behavioral pattern when using these apps.
