It limits you to 12 or so potential matches per day (the exact amount depends on how many Facebook friends you have), giving it a bit more focus than the sprawl of Tinder or Happn.
They also just introduced timed matches which give you 24 hours to send the first message otherwise it expires, encouraging users to make matches more quickly.
In theory, Hinge gives you a steady stream of friends of friends I really like Hinge – the fact that it connects you within a certain number of degrees with your Facebook friends makes the matches more realistic.
I've chatted with many and met a couple of women through Hinge.

Hinge is one of a clutch of apps that try to leverage your existing social network.Once you connect your Facebook account, it recommends matches you have mutual friends with – letting you know their employment and education, then giving you the chance to chat if you both like each other.They claim that it’s a great way to find that cute girl you spotted at the supermarket, but in reality it tends to just yield a long list of people you were vaguely near that one time.For obvious reasons, this one works well in major cities, but will be less useful as the local population density drops.
I used CMB casually for 8 months and ultimately didn't meet anyone from it.
