Last month I met my goal: I completed 20 interviews with Tinder users. The interviews were with 11 men and 9 women. Interviewees were aged 19-52, and most had been active Tinder users for about a year.
Though there’s still a lot of work to do on the analysis, last weekend I presented initial results from a paper entitled “All the World’s a Stage: Strategies of Self-Presentation on Tinder” at the Asian Conference on Media & Mass Communication (MediAsia) in Osaka, Japan. Those slides are available online.
I’ll continue with my analysis in the coming months. Watch here for updates!
