A few days ago I got to know, thanks to GDPR, a lot of websites are allowing to export your account data (Tinder included). It enables you to see what information these sites store about you.
In addition to being transparent with privacy, these data can help provide statistics that these sites never provided before.
Wouldn’t it be cool to analyze and quantify what you unconsciously do on Tinder? With that mindset, I requested Tinder for my account data.
You can request for your own data at https://account.gotinder.com/data
The data will be emailed to you in a day or two.

Take a look at this graph for new cases of COVID-19 cases over total confirmed cases.

You are poor like me and can’t afford to buy the new iPhone at their real price. What do you do? You wait for the price drop. (Truth be told, still poor to but the iPhone with the price drop, but we’ll assume I can buy if the price drops 😅 ) Sure enough, you can use one of the thousands of already existing price drop aggregators but how cool would it be to build one on your own? So let’s do that.
First, let us import the packages that we are going to be needing.

Ever since Leo Hendrik Baekeland invented plastics in 1907, plastics have been an incremental part of our life. We use plastics everywhere- from disposable straws to packing loaves of bread. Plastic is everywhere. Plastic is cheap, easy to manufacture, and serves the purpose well. Because plastics are synthetic they can be moulded into things natural alternatives simply can’t. So, there’s no surprise when we see plastics being huge celebrities in our lives.
Like all good things, extreme use has cons too. We are just beginning to see them after over a century of deriving extensive use cases.
