Dating app Tinder released information about users in 2020, including the emojis that gained the most in popularity the quickest this year. 

The list reflected 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic changed most aspects of life, including dating. People increasingly turned to online dating while stuck at home. Match Group, which owns Tinder, OKCupid, and Plenty of Fish, rolled out virtual dating options with video calling, which has helped with growth. Tinder's year end report also noted many dates moved online to other games, including Animal Crossing.
