But Mc Leod says other changes coming soon to Hinge’s algorithms may help on that front.
“We pay attention to those kinds of things in the algorithm,” he says, in response to a question about how apps should handle people who regularly ghost their matches.

This helps to clean up the inbox without requiring users actually unmatch – something people are sometimes unwilling to do, because…well, you know…
The end result of “Your Turn” is two-fold – it reduces inbox clutter and makes it clear who’s turn it is to chat next.
Hinge CEO Justin Mc Leod explains the idea behind “Your Turn” first emerged from focus groups, where users told the company they didn’t always abandon their conversations intentionally.
Sometimes, they simply lost track of people in their inbox, or, 23 percent of the time, they just “got busy and forgot.” The Hinge team then developed a feature that would better flag conversations you hadn’t responded to yet.Most dating apps match users then leave it up to them to initiate their chat.When Bumble launched, however, it broke new ground by having women make the first move.Hinge doesn’t disclose the number of users it has, but says it’s now growing at 15 percent month-over-month, with the majority of downloads from word-of-mouth.Most of its users are also college-educated, with 90 percent of the user base between the ages of 23 and 36.Offer: Christmas special menu Where: La Folie Lab, Bandra and Lower Parel Phone: 9920657589, 9167937019 When: 16 December onward Where: Old Wild West, First Floor, Trade View Building Oasis Complex, Kamala Mills Compound Pandurang Budhkar Marg Lower Parel, Mumbai.
