Tinder’s New ‘Feed’ Feature Is Not A Hit With Users

In an attempt to further modernize the dating app and up the chances of singles making a love connection, Tinder just released a feed feature on the app and users are far from impressed. The new ‘feed’ feature is meant to add a social media element to the dating app and allows for singles to get instant info on the activity of some of their matches. Some of the info users can now see on their match’s profile includes new photo uploads or changes and their favorite Spotify songs.

Some users are not a fan of the new feature and took to Twitter where they say they find it to be creepy and an invasion of privacy.

Tinder took to their blog defending the new feature encouraging users to give it a try. The dating app says the new feature is “an exciting new way to see more of what someone is all about by giving you a true glimpse into their world.”

In their blog post they give a lengthy explanation and mini tutorial on how to use feed to your online dating advantage, saying: “With Feed, we’ve made it easier than ever to connect with any match – you can send a message specific to any update by double-tapping the content, whether you want to give Leilani a shout-out on her solid Boomerang skills, or let Zoe know the “Best. Burger. Ever.” pic she just posted is your favorite too, and just happens to be across the street from your office. (Happy hour, anyone?)”

Despite their defense, users aren’t really here for it and just think it’s another way for matches to stalk them online without them realizing.

Tinder initially trialed the feed feature in New Zealand, Australia, and Canada but is now being rolled out to all users worldwide.

Do you think Tinder’s new feature will have a negative impact on the dating app? Do you think it will discourage users from logging in?
