Got no valentine to spend Valentine's Day with this Wednesday? Looking for company on Tinder? Look no further. If you feel like exploring how these dating apps work or simply just feel like sharing experiences instead of going on yet another date, swipe right to joining us this Wednesday, February 14 at 7pm.

Online dating has gone from a frowned-upon way of finding romance to a daily love affair for millions of people worldwide. Tinder had about 50 million users back in 2014, and its Chinese counterpart, Tantan claimed 60 million last year. And these are only two apps among many others, not to mention dating sites such as and many more. But how do they work? And do they actually work or is it just coincidence? And how much of our personal data are these apps using, especially without our knowledge?

We wonder. So if you do too, join us!

***This is NOT a workshop or a lecture - just a bunch of people interested in the topic who want to talk about it and maybe come up with a project, so don't be shy and don't worry if you don't know a thing about it! We will figure it out together.

周三没有情人度过情人节吗? 在Tinder上寻找朋友? 别再看一眼。 如果你想探索这些约会app的工作方式,或者只是想分享经验,而不是再次约会,请在2月14日星期三下午7点加入我们。

网上约会已经从寻找浪漫的皱眉,到全世界数百万人的日常恋情。 2014年,Tinder拥有约5000万用户,而探探去年则有6000万用户。 而这些只是其中的两个应用程序,更不用说像match.com等约会网站了。

我们想知道。 所以,如果你也是,加入我们!

***这不是一个研讨会或一个讲座 - 只是一群对这个话题感兴趣的人想要谈论这个话题,也许想出一个项目,所以不要害羞,不要担心,知道一件事情!我们将一起解决。
