Manchester City and Tinder announce multi-million pound partnership

Struggling to get dates with pictures? Tinder's giving videos a go

Manchester City's 3-0 defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday was far from their "perfect match", but they claim to have found it in a commercial partnership with Tinder. Tinder then asks you to hand over "relationship interests, work history, and education history" from Facebook. The problem, Tinder says, has since been fixed.

Facebook's changes in response to the scandal appeared to stop Tinder from getting access to the information it obtains from its users - including their logins.

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. While some people seriously panicked at the thought of not being able to swipe left or right, most took to humor to deal with the fact that they couldn't cancel dates or couldn't hook up with anyone for a few yours. The adjustments are created to limit the information apps can gather from users following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, which Facebook now says affected 87 million users, up from the "approximately" 270,000 initially reported by the social media giant in March. "This information is used to create fuller profiles, verify authenticity and provide support".

The dating app can be linked with Facebook to see mutual friends shared with potential matches as well as use Facebook photos on a Tinder profile. The social network inadvertently locked out the dating app's users when the former changed its privacy and API settings. "Bravo to Facebook for being considerate of their only valuable product". Thus, encouraging the people on Tinder to try out Loops seeing as they won't have to remove a picture in order to add a Loop.
