Launched back in 2018, Tinder’s Top Picks are a feature, designed to highlight user’s most potential matches. In other words, the Top Picks feature aims to present you the users that Tinder thinks are your best matches.

What are Tinder Top Picks

According to Tinder, all users on this platform are entitled to receive one top pick per day, however, those who have subscriptions to Tinder Gold or Tinder Platinum will see a whole set of these top pics every single day.

How does Tinder Top Picks work?

It is all based on Tinder’s algorithm where data is combined from the user’s profile along with the details they've added on those profile. In addition, this algorithm monitors the user's swiping behavior and based on that decides what Top Picks are the most suitable for you.

When Tinder is complete with that analysis, it will present you a batch of Tinder profiles that are considerably your Top Picks and from then on, it is up to you to choose what to next.

  • Use nothing but high-quality photos
    Your potential dates would want to see photos of you that highlight nothing but your best features. So, choose pictures that are of good quality and show the best of you. This is with regards to the one that Tinder chooses to show first but also for the rest of your photos on this platform.

Will Tinder notify me if I am someone’s Top Pick?
