“Black Status” users are sent 100 matches per day, which means they have a large number of Facebook friends who also use Hinge.
Matches who mutually like each other can begin the conversation via text.
Facebook profile photos of nearby singles appear randomly; users respond with an easy “like” or “nope” with the swipe of their fingers.
When both people like what they see, a connection is made. A little bribery can go a long way (for some people). Couples who’ve locked down a serious relationship can join the per month couples section of the site, which offers date night deals by city.
But singles can leave a hint if they’re feeling brave.
Using Facebook, Hinge sends you a selection of friends-of-friends every day at noon.
