(Well, unless Tinder’s users shut down their accounts and delete the app because they don’t want their Tinder usage and dating profile revealed, I suppose!) The solution for the Tinder Social problem is easy enough to fix, though. The feature is currently opt-out instead of opt-in – that is, you can disable it from the app’s Settings screen.Similar to how Tinder works for finding prospective dates, Tinder Social lets friends swipe and match with other groups they want to meet.Unfortunately, Tinder users who are being opted into this feature by default are surprised to find that it automatically displays which of their Facebook friends are also using Tinder – information not everyone wants revealed.
Put on your battle gear because dating has become a minefield strewn with fakes ready to blow up in your face …

The unfortunate truth is that the paid singles don’t know who is free and who is not.
