Tinder: becoming a commodity through consumption practices

"While most people know about online dating sites like Match.com and eHarmony, a new app called Tinder is proving to be popular with younger users. Tinder takes a users Facebook profile and connects them with other users in their area. From there, it takes both people to like each other (or swipe right), to become a match and start talking. ...

'Our research continually shows that in fact, many college aged woman are having sex to get the relationships, whereas guys are having sex to get the sex,' Dr. Liahna Gordon said. In that way, Dr. Gordon argues, Tinder, with what many see as a hookup app, favors the motivations of men. ...

Gordon is concerned about Tinder being another way to commodify humans. 'It's like shopping! I'm going to try this one on, oh don't like that one,' Gordon said. 'It's a continual supply and that there's always more. That provides a lot of excitement in some lives that where people aren't so content with their lives.' At least for now, it seems young people will continue to shop."

Tinder: swiping yes to intimate invitations from relative strangers

"Tinder uses your existing social networking data from Facebook to locate people in the immediate vicinity, tell you a bit about them, whether you have any friends in common and (most importantly) show you a pic.

It has slimmed down the emotional, cognitive and financial investment required by the virtual dating process to one simple question: 'Do I want to do you?' What more modern way to make that most basic binary decision of whether you want to shag someone than a game of real–world 'Hot or Not'?

Social media has made us expert first–daters, well–versed in smalltalk and over–sharing with strangers. The quick follow–though from swipe to sex is similarly instinctive for a generation with an appetite for immediacy."
