Top picks are a recent addition to Tinder. It gives you a list of 10 profiles daily that have high elo scores and similar interests as you. Tinder states that these profiles are “picked just for you”, that way you can find attractive compatible girls instead of swiping. It’s based on info in users profiles such as hobbies, interest, education, or job.
WHERE TO FIND THE TOP PICKS
On the top of your discovery screen, there is a diamond that allows you to change between normal mode and top picks.
ARE TINDER TOP PICKS REAL?
Yes, all the profiles that Tinder shows under the top picks are real.
IS A LIKE FROM TOP PICKS JUST LIKE A SUPERLIKE?
The blue star icon allows you to superlike a top pick. If you don’t want to, just click on the picture and then press the heart bottom on the bottom right corner.
DO TINDER TOP PICKS KNOW OR GET A NOTIFICATION?
Nope, it’s just like swiping right on a profile. If you superlike her though, she will get a notification.
Superliking a top pick
Most of the profiles shown have a higher ELO score, so to be seen by her, it may be advantageous to use your superlike. Having a lower ELO score, your profile is going to be farther back in her swipe stack.
Free Users Vs Tinder Gold
Free users only get 1 top pick per day, while Tinder gold members get up to 10. If gold members want to purchase more top picks, they can buy packs of 10, 20, or 30. The price of that is $3 per pack of 10 or $4 per 20.
you run out of Top Picks for the day, you can purchase more in bundles of 10 at $0.29 each, 20 at $0.19 each, or 30 at $0.16 each.
Do the additional Top Picks Disappear?
If you don’t use the extra picks you pay for, they expire at the end of the day.
Picks Reset Daily
You’ll want to check Tinder daily so that you can see the new top picks for the day.
Passport With Top Picks
If you use the tinder passport feature, you can see top picks from around the world. This is great if traveling to a new city in a few days.
The feature is available in most places Tinder is available, so don’t sweat it if you’re traveling
How Does Tinder Pick Profiles to show you?
In a bit of an indictment of those systems, it appears Tinder is using Amazon’s AWS image recognition software in conjunction with text recognition software to come up with these picks
NO FILTER ON DISTANCE
Top picks aren’t filtered by the distance settings you have set up. So a few of the girls Tinder shows might be outside of your desired range.
Tinder has data on what you like & dislike based on info in your profile and swiping habits.
They may be relatively popular profiles who have shown a higher than usual right swipe rate,
HIGHER ELO SCORE
It only makes sense to showcase the more popular profiles on the platform. That way it can lead you on to thinking you’ll be able to match with any of these profiles.
HOW TO GET SELECTED AS A TOP PICK
Getting selected as a top pick will lead your profile to getting more likes and matches. And guess what? It’s not too difficult.
List specifics in your bio. Tinder can pull information about your occupation, education, and hobbies/interests for the Top Pick card.
CROPPED FIRST PIC
Have your main profile picture as a headshot. Most of the top picks have this & headshot photos are perceived as more attractive.
Tinder wants to promote active users as its top picks. If you swipe a lot & have a high ELO score, chances are you’ll be a top pick.
SHOULD YOU USE TINDER TOP PICKS?
You might as well. I wouldn’t pay for extra, but if you might as well capitalize on it. It’s no difference than swiping right on a profile of a girl that you think is attractive.
