Where the film is somewhat stronger is when it talks about the very real psychological tricks Tinder and other dating apps have adopted to keep users engaged and addicted to swiping.
Dating app companies don’t have any data on how many lasting relationships result from their app’s usage, “Swiped” finds.
It’s odd, as tech companies are usually data hungry beasts.
The dating app companies have no idea, either, the film proclaims.
The piece had extrapolated out their personal dating struggles and turned them into a condemnation of the entire online dating market.And success rates would seemingly be the exact kind of metric a company claiming to solve issues around relationship-finding would want to track.Though everyone today seems to know someone who “met on an app,” it’s unclear what portion of the user base is actually finding long-term success with those relationships.Have you ever wanted to see one of your “hate-reads” stretched out to feature-film length?If so, you’ll want to watch HBO’s new documentary, “Swiped,” which takes a depressing, trigger-inducing and damning look at online dating culture, and specifically Tinder’s outsized influence in the dating app business.
