Online dating with photo
Maybe it's time to get old-fashioned with our dating profiles?
Although 80 percent of Hinge users' shots were posed, the data reveals that candid photos are 15 percent more likely to receive a like.
Hinge released a Profile Picture Report that reveals exactly which kinds of pictures will be a guaranteed hit (or miss) on dating profiles.
Hinge data scientists assigned 35 unique photo tags (like: hair up versus hair down) to a random sampling of a thousand photos, then they analyzed how often the photos were liked by other users.“Since Hinge profiles are designed to show off our Members’ personalities, we want to help them put their best foot forward with their photos,” Hinge spokesperson Jean-Marie Mc Grath tells Bustle.
I guess not everyone is into the direct eye contact thing, because photos where women were looking from the camera were 74 percent more likely to receive a like. Let's be honest: there's nothing more annoying than trying to pick someone out of a group photo on a dating app profile.
Apparently Hinge users agree, because photos where women were standing along were 69 percent more likely to receive a like.
Irrespective of the gender and orientation, the chances of increasing profile traffic depends on the pictures that display the personal interest of the person—their sense of humor, hobbies, interest, pets, etc.
For those people, dating apps come to rescue by allowing them to meet a partner and extended their virtual relationship into a real-time relationship.
The body language of the person in that profile picture impacts how they are perceived.
With the help of a perfect picture, the chances of attracting a few more messages in the inbox are higher.
to choose from, or you're camera shy and seriously dreading taking some dating profile-friendly photos — it can be quite the process if you're serious about putting your best face forward online.
(Which, btw, you should be: it's not a secret that, when it comes to dating apps, people tend to swipe first and ask questions later.) But like any true Millennial knows, all problems are Google-able, and this time it's relationship-focused dating app Hinge coming to the rescue.
