Wanna hook up with a celebrity? How about an Olympic athlete? Tinder users are making clever attempts are “passporting” to the Olympic Village in Pyeongchang in hopes of scoring points with an Olympic athlete of their own.
“Passporting” allows users to set their location to pretty much anywhere so they can match with people in that location. There’s reportedly been a 1,850 percent jump in swipers “passporting” to the Olympic Village. Tinder reports there’s also been a tremendous increase in overall usage in the Villages, in right swipes, and matches.
In case you were wondering, the U.S. has the most users switching their locations to the Olympic Village with Sweden and the U.K. following behind. Tinder has even so kindly given all Olympic athletes free access to Tinder Gold.
