Men use gender swap filter to find out what it's really like to be a woman on Tinder
Hands up, whose WhatsApp group has been inundated with countless selfies from friends using Snapchat’s new gender swap feature?
The app’s latest filter - which enables you to see what you’d look like as woman - has proven a social media hit and now, men have found a clever use for the hilarious craze.
Male Snapchat users have been creating faux Tinder profiles using photographs of themselves as women to see what it’s really like to be a female user on the online dating app.
One social media user explained that her brother pretended to be a female dater using the Snapchat filer and had already received an influx of complimentary messages.
Alongside a screenshot of his fake profile, she wrote: “How do these men think that is a real woman’s face?”
