Tinder's latest idea to monetize its mobile matching service is rolling out worldwide, as users outside of Australia and the UK will be able to Boost to the top of nearby dater's queues. Getting Tinder to put its thumb on the algorithm is free once a week as a part of the variably-priced Plus subscription, or it can be purchased individually. Either way, it lasts just 30 minutes, so Pokémon Go players can just treat it like a lucky egg -- the company says it can result in as much as a 10x increase in profile views.

Of course, even if you pay the fee for extra exposure, that doesn't guarantee any extra matches, so making sure you're using the best picture or handing control over to a professional could be worthwhile. Cuffing season is upon us, so choose wisely -- or don't, Netflix is releasing Black Mirror season three this week anyway, you have so many other things to do.
