CHICAGO TRIBUNE - July 27 - Crown is a new project from Match Group. Every day at noon, users receive 16 different profiles, chosen by an algorithm. Users crown a winner by choosing between two people at a time, narrowing the 16 choices to four. But the possibility of romance can only begin if one of the quartet of matches also "crowns" the user. The app, still in beta, is available for iOS only and in selected cities (Crown launched in LA in June). More specifically, the format of Crown may convince users they have choices, but actually force them to choose between two profiles they are not interested in, Chicago dating and relationship expert Anita A. Chlipala says. With limited space for a bio, Crown is based mostly on profile photos. Also, the app only allows users to match with either male- or female-identifying profiles, unlike Tinder and Bumble which has a "male and female" option.
