You have seen that little blue star on your swiping Tinder screen or perhaps on someone’s profile but you still don’t know what it means.
Or, maybe you’ve just started to use Tinder and you are wondering what this blue star sign represents.
In this blog post, we’ll explain everything you ought to know about the little blue star on Tinder. So keep reading to fully understand its meaning.
Long story short, the blue star on Tinder is a unique feature that is mostly used by premium users with the meaning that one’s profile has been super liked, in other words, someone likes them a lot.
So, instead of all of that swiping to the left or to the right, when a user swipes you up to super like you, that is when you’ll get to see the precious blue star.
Important Note: Users have one super like for every 24 hours. This means that if a person uses their super like on you, it truly has some meaning.
It is also known as Super Like and it’s great that Tinder introduced us with this feature so that profiles can stand out compared to others. Super likes are represented by the blue star sign appearing right next to their names and they are automatically sent to the top of the user’s cart stack and notified about it right away.
Basically, if you Super Like someone’s profile, the chances of matching with that person are increased by three times. This will make your profile stand out from the other users and your potential match will be immediately notified that you’ve Super Liked their profile.
In the free version of the Tinders app, super likes are pretty rare and as we mentioned previously, users are able to use the super like only once a day.
If someone wants to get more super likes, they must purchase Tinder’s paid subscription known as Tinder Gold.
Tinder did a little research on this Super Likes situation and discovered that the feature resulted in about a 70% increase in conversations amongst users. Without a doubt, it maximizes the matching chances and it is successful in its aspect and also brings more improved interactions overall.
As we already said, if you don’t have a Gold or Platinum Tinder Subscription and you are using only the free version of the app, you will be able to get only one Super Like per day.
Therefore, if you believe that you need more Super Likes than just one per day, you should definitely purchase some more because in the end, they will increase the possibility of a potential match.
Other than that, if you do not want to spend money on this thing, you can simply focus on the best presentation of yourself, which can skyrocket your chances of matching.
In case you accidentally swipe up and put the Super Like on someone’s profile, you can undo it and there is no room for panic here. You have two ways to undo that Super Like.
The first is, if you are already on Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold, you can simply tap the yellow rewind button to undo this action.
Second, if you are using the free version of Tinder and you’ve accidentally matched by sending a Super Like, you can try to undo it by going to the message screen where you’ll need to tap the red flag to unmatch.
