In this Valentine’s week special, Jordan Erica Webber looks at whether apps have helped or hindered the art of dating
Grindr, the dating app geared towards gay, bisexual, trans and queer people, celebrates its 10th anniversary in March. In addition to being one of the most popular dating apps, it is also being used by enthusiastic tourists wanting to learn more about the places they’re visiting, without having to pick up a travel guide book.
How has the app, along with Tinder and others, affected the way we meet people? Jordan chats to professor of sociology at Stanford Michael Rosenfeld, the director for equality at Grindr, Jack Harrison-Quintana, and PHD student Rachel Katz.
