Business Insider talked to some early Tinder Social users who said the feature isn’t opt-in—it’s automatically activated.
When someone adds you to their list to make a group for Tinder Social, others can see you in the group, and can see that you’re an active Tinder user.
It’s unclear what the “new adventure” is that Tinder refers to—perhaps it looks like two groups of friends uncomfortably standing around at a bar, every person individually swiping through Tinder on their own phone and not speaking.
Early Tinder Social users have made a discovery even more uncomfortable than the premise of going on a group date with a bunch of people you and your friends collectively deemed passable on Tinder: the group feature shows a list of your Facebook friends that use Tinder, and lets you see their profiles.
Tinder Social, as it’s being called, is currently being tested in Australia, but it will be rolled out internationally in the future.
The UK Dating Group is designed as a simple to use secure environment for single men and women to find an online date in the UK.Check out your potential date before you agree to meet them, get to know their likes and dislikes as well as what they look like, and only when you are happy with them do you arrange to meet them.
