Using Tinder in Your Hometown Is Like Visiting an Alternate Reality

The author of this source is Helena Fitzgerald. Posted by The Atlantic. She has did an alternate route and interviewed a few people who are in for the holidays or visiting their hometowns. The reason why I tagged this post is because it is different from my other sources that I have used. This points out the fact that older and mature people in their early thirties are not on this app to just hook up. People are not just finding love either. Tinder is not as serious as it millennials think it is. Adults really use it to meet new people when they are traveling and some just sees this app as a game.

A 31 year-old straight woman who just got out of medical school and is in her residency said, “You know it can’t be anything serious, because you’re going home in a few days, so if you open up the app, it’s more as a game than anything else.”

A Political Ad Has Turned to Tinder, Because That’s Where the Millennials Are

This just took a whole new turn in connecting my idea of Tinder with work and jobs. This just got political! Never would have connected this part to being political but now they are extending the app to show advertisement when you are swipping. This is written by Rebecca Nelson and it really shows how the government is trying o show millennials the new way of being educated about politics. A new way in showing information to people who don’t care much or look into politics anymore. In the article, it says,””Mark Udall’s votes for higher taxes and invasive Obamacare were lefty swipes at America’s youth,” the ad’s narrator says, imploring viewers to tweet their opposition to the tax bill at the senator.”. I would really like to know more about this part of advertisement because people are actually using the app to put advitisment targeting the younger generations that use the app. Rebecca most likely wrote this to show that Tinder is an awesome way to give out ads to educated to convince people to vote and to like who in the office.

People will still find romance. People will still want to be married, people will still want to find the love of their lives, and majority of the people that are going online are still trying to date, they are not trying to just hook up, they are actually trying to find their significant other.
