Tinder Social drawing ire over invasion of privacy


Tinder Social drawing ire over invasion of privacy

Tinder launched a pilot for a new feature, Tinder Social, in Australia this week. But this feature is drawing criticism over privacy.

Tinder Social lets users form a group, so that they can check out other groups together and swipe if they like what they see. But to form a group, the feature shows you a list of your Facebook friends who are using the app.

That may not be a big deal to some people, but others are taking issue with the possibility that co-workers, bosses, ex-partners, and acquaintances will know they're using the app. Tinder countered this by saying, "It's important to note Tinder's not a secret considering 70% of users download Tinder because their friends recommend it."

Tinder has since added an update to its Social blog letting users know how they can opt out of the group functionality.
