Tinder suffers outage after Facebook refreshes data policy

  • Above Tinder In the loop

A Tinder and City-branded blimp was flown over Manchester to launch the sponsorship today, while the app switched its colours to sky blue in tribute to their new beau.

Tinder were interested in becoming United's sleeve sponsor last summer, as revealed in Sportsmail's Sports Agenda column, but have opted for a general agreement with City instead.

The partnership says it will create unique experiences for Tinder users and football fans "from exclusive access to games, to once-in-a-lifetime experiences, events at the stadium and unique ways to engage with fans".

It said: "Tinder requires you provide additional Facebook permissions in order to create or use a Tinder account".

After the changes, if a user tries to log into their Tinder account, they will likely see an error saying, "Facebook Permissions".




Update - 7:30pm: A statement from a Tinder spokesperson confirms the issue has been fixed and the service is back up and running.

In the process, though, Facebook's efforts seem to have inadvertently disrupted usage in popular dating app Tinder, which prominently features Facebook integration.

In an attempt to prevent another Analytica-gate, Facebook on Wednesday implemented new measures to regulate the data third-party apps can use and access. "We anticipate Tinder Loops will lead to even more matches and conversations and look forward to seeing how our users creatively adopt the feature", he added. As regular profiles gradually evolve and now include videos, Tinder is trying to give users the chance to better express their personality and get a better idea of potential matches. It throws you into an endless login loop. Basically, it would appear that Facebook has revoked Tinder's permissions, which also means that it's revoked your ability to meet and potentially fall in love with new people. "Bravo to Facebook for being considerate of their only valuable product".

We reached out to Tinder in an effort to further get to the bottom of what may turn out to be a sexless night for millions, and will update this post when and if we hear back.
