In late August, Tinder launched a new service called Tinder University; a version of the app only available to college students. It’s so exclusive that you need your .edu to log in.
Once you’re in the university version of the app, your school logo will appear on your profile and add to the number of things potential matches will use to judge you.
Due to the newness of this feature, the success of this feature is unknown but I don’t think it will be that successful. For the most part, the tinder demographic for most college towns are students and most put their colleges in their bio. In addition to the fact that you can switch between regular tinder and tinder university, the feature contradicts its purpose. Their appeal stimulate the interest of their younger demographic appears unnecessary.
What do you think? Are you willing to give your .edu to a dating service or is that shitting where you eat?
