New dating app 'Lively' is a perfect mix of popular social media apps like Tinder, Instagram and Snapchat. The app developed by 'Zoosk' allows users to create personal stories for their profiles by adding videos and photos into a transitioning slideshow.

While perusing through dating profiles, users can view the stories of potential mates who are nearby. If they like the person, they simply tap the heart at the bottom of the screen. Users will only be matched if both parties select the heart for each other.

The interface to add photos and videos is similar to Instagram, the viewing aspect of stories is just like Snapchat, whilst the location-based matching platform is pretty much like Tinder. By converging aspects of popular social apps, Lively has the potential to gain momentum as a viable dating platform for Millennials.
