Surprisingly, however, users who browsed anonymously also wound up with fewer matches (defined as a sequence of at least three messages exchanged between users) than their non-anonymous counterparts.
This was especially true for female users: those with anonymous browsing wound up with an average of 14% fewer matches. Women don’t like to send personal messages to initiate contact, explains Jui Ramaprasad, an assistant professor of information systems at Mc Gill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management.
Out of 100,000 randomly selected new users, 50,000 were given free access to the feature for a month, enabling them to view profiles of other users without leaving telltale digital traces.
The researchers expected the anonymity feature to lower social inhibitions -- and apparently it did.
It enables mobile users to choose who knows where they are and when, giving them full control of their desired privacy.
In a large-scale experiment conducted through a major North American online dating website, a team of management scholars from Canada, the U. and Taiwan examined the impact of a premium feature: anonymous browsing.

CALGARY – A new dating app that’s touting itself as a “classier Tinder” has come to Canada. It’s called Hinge, and 30-year-old CEO Justin Mc Leod said it’s more like meeting people at a “friend’s house party” than the random matching that goes on in many other apps in the marketplace.
“Where they went to work, where they went to school…and your friend understands your taste: you like lawyers, you don’t like bankers, you don’t like people who aren’t over 5’7, et cetera.”Instead of using your location to show you matches, Hinge shows a list of about 20 potential dates once a day that’s curated from friends of friends (of friends).

Though they don’t disclose how many people are using Hinge, it secured million in funding from Shasta Ventures in December 2014, and has launched in more than 20 markets. Toronto is the first Canadian city where Hinge launched Thursday, and the company says the waitlist is growing four times faster than in its other international cities.
Mc Leod said it will be in other cities north of the border soon, including Calgary.
