The new Tinder Super Like feature lets users tell a potential match that they have above-average interest in a connection.

Following a now infamous and oft-replicated formula, Tinder users traditionally swipe left or right on other user's photos to indicate a like (right) or a pass (left). Now, dating hopefuls will also be able to swipe upward to send a Tinder Super Like -- showing true enthusiasm for another user's profile. When a user sends a Tinder Super Like, they will pop up in their target's screen with a blue banner. In the Super Like recipient's list of matches, the sender will appear with a blue star next to their name.

Because each user can only send a limited number of these extra enthusiastic responses every day, the Tinder Super Like will -- the dating app hopes -- create more powerful, high level connections between users.
