Tinder Goes Viral In Antartica
Just how far and wide is the virality of Los Angeles-based Tinder? According to a report from New York Magazine, Tinder has made it to yet another continent: Antarctica. The app, which lets users vote "yes" or "no" on other users they would or would not like to me--apparently helped connect (but not hook up) two scientists deployed for research there at two different research stations. Antarctica hosts between a thousand to three thousand people, mostly scientists and support personnel conducting research on the continent.
