In addition, these internet trolls are likely to be motivated by negative social rewards, meaning they are reinforced by creating a disruptive social environment.
But our new research shows trolls also pose a real threat to online dating, marring a potentially positive social (and even romantic) experience.
Women may be just as likely (or perhaps, in some cases, even more so) than men to troll, but it depends on the context in which this behaviour is being explored.
Unfortunately trolling is a particularly pervasive behaviour online and it seems that there are few places to hide.
Perhaps Tinder users are viewed as easy trolling targets, due to the “desperate” stigma that some people still associate with online dating.
Considering the easy and free access to Tinder (although there is a paid Tinder Plus option too), this would certainly satisfy the dysfunctional impulse of the troll, on contrast to paid sites such as e Harmony.
These slang words were chosen as they are commonly used in trolling culture.
Supporting the previous research, we found that individuals who trolled on Tinder scored significantly higher on dark traits such as psychopathy and sadism.
For example, on the social media platform Twitter, women are just as likely as men to use derogatory language such as “slut” and “whore”.
Previous studies on trolling behaviours show that men troll more than women in online forums, gaming and even Facebook.
It’s unclear at the moment as to why women are engaging in similar amounts of trolling behaviours as men are on Tinder.
Figures from the Pew Research Centre show that since 2013 the number of 55-64 year olds using the internet to find a partner has doubled, and for 18-24 year olds the number has nearly tripled.
There are many advantages of online dating, such as a wider network of potential romantic partners and the opportunity to engage in social interactions with less discomfort.
