dc.description.abstractThis study explores how and why people use Tinder, the popular mobile dating application. By comparing use across age and gender, this research found key differences between men and women and their perceptions of mobile dating. In addition, this study examined the potential of new media gratifications granted by smartphones and mobile technologies. A 30-question online survey was administered at Texas State University, producing a random sample of 578 respondents, to which 38 used Tinder and participated in this research.
