Tinder suffering from outage after Facebook's new privacy updates

Tinder Looping video

Manchester City have got a new partnership with dating app Tinder, but the timing of the #PerfectMatch campaign is more than a little unfortunate after their Champions League first leg collapse against Liverpool.

The company says it will evaluate how users respond to Loops before making a decision to roll it out to other markets and are now being tested for iOS users in Canada and Sweden.

In response, the app's official Twitter account confirmed the problem with the message: "A technical issue is preventing users from logging into Tinder".

Apple has hired Google's head of search and artificial intelligence
Giannandrea will focus on AI technology that supports Siri , while Federighi will likely still oversee the user-facing components. The conventional wisdom is that Apple is a laggard in the race to infuse consumer technology with artificial intelligence .

To understand how Facebook might have broken Tinder, it's important to realize that one of the main ways to access the dating app is via a Facebook account (you can also use your phone number).

Tinder leverages Facebook data to create a dating profile within the app.

With outsiders' access to data under scrutiny, Facebook has outlined several changes to further tighten its policies, including restricting access that apps can get about users' events, as well as information about groups such as member lists and content.

Paytm Mall to raise $446 mn from SoftBank and Alibaba
SoftBank has planned to invest as much as $25 billion in Saudi Arabia over the next three to four years, according to Bloomberg . SoftBank and GCL's new venture will eventually have a capacity of 4GW and will be implemented in two 2GW phases.

Tinder said in a statement Wednesday night that the problem was fixed.

Others have tried tweeting directly at Tinder in hopes of receiving an answer, though this not seem to be a particularly successful way forward. "Tinder requires you provide additional Facebook permissions in order to use a Tinder account". So now that Facebook is tweaking the way in which it works with these independent apps, things are getting a bit hairy. At the moment, Facebook and Tinder are working together to fix this issue, so that people will regain access to the dating app without any more errors. It throws you into an endless login loop.

Tinder is also said to add a "female first" option, that would allow the ladies to take a call whether to strike a conversation or not. "Bravo to Facebook for being considerate of their only valuable product". "We ask our users to ensure that they have updated the app and are running the most recent version".
