Tinder Social launches to help you find friends without benefits

While flicking through Tinder, you may find profiles of people who are new to a city or purely seeking friendship. Tinder is now rolling out Tinder Social to help users create and find groups to hang out with.

Users will be asked to activate Tinder Social, which then allows them to connect to Tinder-using Facebook friends. Groups can consist of up to four people and then assign a status such as “Watch the game with us,” or "Going to a concert tonight.” Tinder then presents other groups as "matches" and the usual Tinder process begins.

Tinder CEO, Sean Rad, said that this new feature "is designed to make it as easy as possible to plan your night, get out into the real world, and meet new people."

“The new feature takes the Tinder experience to a new level, offering our users more ways to expand their social circles and interact with potential matches. We believe it’s the ultimate tool for planning your next adventure,” he added.
