In a blog post on Wednesday, <a href="http://blog.gotinder.com/post/128712169906/introducing-super-like-a-new-type-of-swipe">Tinder announced their newest feature &ldquo;Super Like,&rdquo;</a> a way to let someone on the app know that you really, really like them. It&rsquo;s another easy to remember action: Just swipe up, or tap the blue star below the photo.</p> <p>According to the blog post, when someone you Super Liked is deciding to swipe right or not, they&rsquo;ll see &ldquo;a bright blue footer and star icon, highlighting that you Super Liked them.&rdquo;</p> <p>The matching mechanism stays the same, if a person you swiped right on reciprocates then <a href="http://www.techspot.com/downloads/6459-tinder-for-mobile.html">Tinder</a> will connect you immediately.</p> <p><img src="http://www.techspot.com/images2/news/bigimage/2015/09/2015-09-10-image-3.png" /></p> <p>But if you&rsquo;re already planning to Super Like with abandon, think again. Each user only gets one Super Like each day, and they don&rsquo;t roll over, so use it with thought. The idea behind this is that Tinder wants the Super Like to be special and for people to actually use it.</p> <p>Currently, this feature is only for Tinder users in Australia, but the company plans to make it available globally later in the year.</p> <p>Another change, although not super, is that the icon for the Passport feature is now a blue star in Discovery preferences. To change your location, while on vacation perhaps, visit Settings &gt; Discovery Preferences &gt; Swiping In.</p><p><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/62069-tinder-adds-superhero-element-their-app-uper-like.html' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/62069-tinder-adds-superhero-element-their-app-uper-like.html'>http://www.techspot.com/news/62069-tinder-adds-superhero-element-their-app-uper-like.html</a></p>[/parsehtml]

    As an Australian I always feel special, but why the special treatment from the company behind Tinder?

    I'm guessing Australian women need more validation than their North American and European counterparts.
