Don’t worry, making a tinder account does not allow them to post anything on your Facebook profile. Ater creating your tinder profile, you will be presented with potential matches based on your information.

On each profile presented to you, you can swipe right to like them or swipe left to ignore them. If you and one of your suggested matches both liked each other’s profile, you’ll be able to send messages to each other.

Tinder is popular because it allows more time for actual communication rather than making you look through lots of information and answer relationship related questions. Think of tinder as online speed dating. It’s intended for people looking for casual or short-term relationships.
