In an attempt to further separate real time conversation, the iPhone dating app Glimpse was launched as a way for curious creatives to meet like minded individuals using Instagram. Someone had to compete with Tinder and Plenty of Fish right? Recently Glimpse introduced a update, encouraging users to connect directly through images verses a match dependent operation. The update allows profile pictures to originate from other locations and target demographic to be adjusted(age, sex, location). A big feature now is if you accidentally skip someone while browsing, you can backtrack. Tinder fans will be thrilled about this I’m sure.
Just like in the real world, it is all about how conversations are started that lead to a potential relationship. Same goes for the Glimpse application. By browsing others images, you get a glimpse into their day-to-day life. If an image peaks your interest, start a conversation based on that particular image.
