Tinder is rolling out a new service in their app exclusively for College and Uni students

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Tinder is rolling out a new service exclusively for College and University Students. The new service "Tinder U" is being launched within the Tinder app.

Quote

Tinder officially announced today that it’s launching a service called Tinder U, a version of Tinder that’s only available to college students. To log in to the feature for the first time, users must have a .edu email address and be geolocated on campus. The functionality is exactly the same as regular Tinder, although the UI looks slightly different: a badge depicting users’ universities will be displayed on their main profile image.

The service will be rolling out to iOS devices at four-year, accredited, not-for-profit schools in the US, Tinder says. Its parent company Match Group, Inc. first announced this product during its quarterly earnings call a couple weeks ago, when it also said Tinder accounted for most of the company’s revenue growth. There were 3.8 million paying Tinder users in Q2 2018, versus 1.7 million at the same time last year.

 

Quote

Users will be able to toggle between Tinder U and regular Tinder. Using the U service will surface students in the same area, regardless of whether they attend the same school. So someone in New York City on Tinder U might see someone from Fordham University, New York University, and Columbia University. We’ve reached out to Tinder for clarification and will update if we hear back.

 

I realize that modern america (amongst other countries) is highly addicted to sex and dating but this is just too far......

I think this is great. I don't need tinder, but this way college students will ONLY meet people who are of legal age and stop anyone perverts from lurking on college students. I don't see the harm at all?

Where was this when I was in uni? I had to go out to social events and join clubs and actually interact with people IRL, what a waste of time.

So more random hookups among college students then after finals exam? Also, why the .edu email?

To prevent people from faking being a college or uni student. You usually can only get .edu email if you're at college or Uni although technically teachers also have .edu emails.

Haha, how pathetic of them. As if your prospects weren't awful enough as it is, Tinder's here to help add more complications to your already overwhelming social life that you're probably too young to understand and have no experience to help cope with!

 

I don't see how this would help anyone in college to be happy or successful considering it's long-known to be the most ruthlessly impersonal route of connecting with people, and because it's useless without decent IRL social skills. But I can see how the colleges wouldn't pretend to care, since the money's more important for them anyway and in reality their days are numbered on the gravy train.

 

All in all it's just another thing setting young folks up for failure while telling them it's how you get success. I wonder what the colleges will 1-up themselves with next...

Wait what? How can pedophiles prey on college students?

I would think pedophiles have a completely different demographic.

You're right, did not mean pedophiles... but my point still stands with the underage thing, my friend keeps finding people on tinder who do NOT look 18 or close, this will fix it, or at least improve it since I was 17 starting Uni

So pretty much doing the opposite of what Facebook did?

Seems a bit pointless to me, especially if there are people who maybe just finished Uni, or are of Uni student age but aren't attending and instead working full time. Just because they don't have an active .edu email doesn't mean they won't be compatible.
Regular Tinder already allows users to put their place of education on their profiles and Tinder will naturally preference showing those people to you if you are in matching universities, just like how it will preference showing users who have mutual friends.

I'm not sure this is coming at a good time. Reason I say that is because many more campuses are having virtual options.  Not to mention community college is becoming a far more attractive and cheaper alternative than becoming a full time 4 year student.

Isn't dealing with perverts part of online dating?  I'm a guy and even I have to deal with unwanted and unsolicited stuff.

 

I guess I fail to see the point of this app, especially since it's not university specific.  If it had a way to filter by university, then it'd make more sense to me.

The problem with something like Tinder is that we all know its a straight up hook up app but they (being Tinder the company) are trying to convince us otherwise and show how "serious" they are about "relationships" and such.

 

Yeah its just a tool and depends how you use it but I'd say the vast majority of people use it to fish for compliments and yeah quick sex.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I have a hard time believing a strong and lasting relationship can consistently sprout out of people who decided to date through an app before knowing each other.

Divorce rates are sky high even in "regular" relationships so... let's just say I wouldn't keep my hopes up.
