Ridgewood NJ, The owner of massive dating apps Tinder and Match has just announced a new partnership to help keep its users safe. Match Group, which owns Tinder, Match, OK Cupid, Hinge and several other services, has made an investment in Garbo, a non-profit, female-founded background check platform. As part of the deal, Garbo’s platform will be available to people using Match Group apps, starting with Tinder later this year.

Let’s be honest, there’s a ton of dating websites out there. From paid dating sites, to free dating sites, you have a plethora to choose from. Some of the best dating sites are Bumble, Tinder, Match, e-Harmony, OkCupid, Hinge, Coffee Meets Bagel, and Elite Singles.
More and more dating sites are being created with some even being geared towards a specific crowd and personality type. All in all, dating sites are a great way to meet people, especially for those who are busy with every day life or people who don’t meet many people in general.
” I think you can have background checks and supervision galore but how can you possibly know everything about a person? He’s a 27 year old guy using Tinder like so many others. It’s kind of scary in the sense that there’s NO way to know what people are doing or are really like. It’s too bad to have a stain on the RPD because in general it seems like we have a mostly good department. “

A new Tinder bot learns who its human overlord finds attractive. Then it goes to work.

I have come to think of Tinder as a sort algorithm for the mind. It surfaces individual data entries—which happen to be humans—and asks the user to make a single decision about them: Would you make out with this person? Or, more tamely, would you be friends with this person?
If both minds sort each other’s data entries into the same category, a chat window opens.
The process is efficient, and the computer does everything except make that one, crucial choice. But perhaps that is too much work. Perhaps that single choice can be automated.
The Vancouver-based programmer Justin Long has done just that. In a post on his personal website, he describes how he automated Tinder using facial-recognition algorithms and a chat bot.
The bot, he writes, is “amazingly effective”—so effective he eventually turned it off.
Long’s bot, which he calls Tinderbox, has two steps: a sort phase and a chat phase. First, Tinderbox asks users to sort 60 faces from Tinder into the “yes” or “no” piles. Using the facial-recognition scheme Eigenface, it notes what kind of features users seem to like—attempting, in other words, to distinguish a user’s “type.” Then it goes to work, automatically sorting images from other Tinder users along the parameters it judges important.
