Tinder introduces Fake News filtering, usage drops by 85%.
The CEO of global giant Match Group - who own Tinder, Hinge, POF and many other dating services is likely to step down this week after the introduction of a fake news filter decimated their user numbers.
Following in the footsteps of Facebook, Instagram and Twitter - Tinder decided to roll out fact-checking on all their users to ensure everything on their profiles was 100% true, in an effort to be more transparent.
Early reports state over 65% of female profiles who described themselves as "fun-loving and super laid back" were flagged as false. While over 90% of male profiles stating they "wanted a real connection" had their accounts suspended.
It seems like Tinder will be closing up shop in the coming months, as no one is going to use the site if they have to be honest about what a fuckwit they are.
