Facebook is smart in that it's making the Dating feature completely separate As Wired has noted, existing dating sites and apps such as Tinder depend on require you to have a Facebook membership in order to sign up. In today's world, you no longer just head over to the bar or public place to meet someone. Now we rely on online apps and services and clever. Coffee Meets Bagel reported that there was a percent jump in a Facebook account to sign in, but you can now log in with just your Another very popular dating site turned app, PlentyOfFish doesn't require a Facebook.
We dug around and found a few ways to help you find your Facebook friends on Tinder.
Please note that all this is possible because of the data one puts on Tinder themselves, which is considered to be public information.
Facebook search is possibly the most powerful, under-used feature available to us all, but rarely will we use the function for more interesting searches. The search function covers basic searches, such as names of people, places, emails and phone numbers, posts, and much more.
But the real magic here is with the Social Graph Search. However, we discovered a workaround using this button on Top Romp.
Also, Social Graph searches depend on the privacy settings of profiles, so your mileage may vary. What exactly is Swipebuster? Appearing attractive doesn't mean you have to forego your personal privacy. Let's take a look at curating the perfect blend for some safe online dating.
Tinder Spy! How to Find Facebook Friends on the Online Dating App
But I tested it out, and it seems to work well, as long as you provide the right information and know for sure that the person is on Tinder. All you need is their first name as it appears on Facebookage, gender, and approximate location where they use Tinder. You can also use one of your search credits to update a profile.
This means knowing whether or not the profile is still active or closed. Updating the data on a result also means getting new photos and profile information. The details for a Super Update include where the user was last active on Tinder within a range of two miles. Swipebuster is a useful, though niche service for those who want to find Facebook friends on Tinder.
Facebook Dating will have that same benefit. If you use Facebook Dating, it will be invisible to your Facebook friends.
Facebook is smart in that it's making the Dating feature completely separate from the life you already have on Facebook. You'll have a whole other profile that you create for Facebook Dating, one that only uses your first name.
You'll have a separate inbox as well, with no overlap between the usual messages you get on Facebook and your Dating-related messages. Unless you tell them, none of your Facebook friends will know that you are using Dating.
Because of all Facebook already knows, it can do a better job of making connections. Facebook already has a ton of information about you, but this is a rare case when the platform can use it to deliver something you really want and not just better-targeted advertising.
It will use its algorithms to make matches, but it can also use its own specialized knowledge to help you find companionship just when you want it most. Imagine you're going to a concert or outdoor festival, or you want to go kayaking this weekend and you wish you had someone to go with.
If the concert is one of your Events on Facebook, or you belong to a kayaking Group there, you can unlock that information in Dating and Facebook will match you with others who have unlocked those same Groups and Events and might be a good fit for you.
