Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo).
You can also link Tinder to your Instagram account, and include info about your employer and/or school. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person and Facebook friends you share (if you’re logged in through your Facebook account).
