Tinder is getting a 'Share My Date' feature for your nosy friends

Tinder is getting a 'Share My Date' feature for your nosy friends

Who you're meeting and where can be sent straight from the app.

Social media is the way to know what your friends are up to in this day and age. I mean, if your relationship isn't Facebook official, is it even real?

Well besides announcing your relationship status on Facebook, from 'Single' to 'In a relationship' all the way to 'It's complicated' (for those that need to know), there's now a new way to share the details of your love life.

Tinder is getting a feature that lets its users share their upcoming dating plans with their friends directly from the app - it's simply called “Share My Date.”

In any case, it's always good to let your friends know where you're going and what the date looks like if you're meeting up with a total stranger and to please the nosey minds of others, of course.


Funnily enough, the new feature was inspired by Tinder's data showing that 51% of singles under 30 let their friends know about their date plans beforehand.

The popular dating app announced that its users will soon be able to send a link that includes details like the match’s name, meeting location, date and time.

There’s even a note option at the bottom in case any extra points need to be shared.

Furthermore, these links can be sent up to 30 days prior to the date and can be edited if anything changes - or if the potential partner gets cold feet.

“At Tinder, we continue to release new features that aim to create a fun, safe, and respectful experience for all," said Tinder CMO Melissa Hobley.

"Discussing plans with friends and family is a time-honoured dating ritual. Share My Date streamlines this basic info-sharing so singles can jump right to the exciting part, from figuring out what to wear to prepping conversation topics.”

The feature isn't just limited to your other single friends using the Tinder app either.

“Share My Date” links are accessible for every recipient even if they're not on the app.

The only difference is how much information they can see.

Friends with a Tinder account can have full access to the match's profile but they can’t interact with it nor message them.

Whereas, non-users will only see a limited version of the profile that covers the match's photos, name, and age, according to a Tinder spokesperson.

To keep your date from going viral, the parent company Match Group has made it so that the “Share My Date” link expires after a certain period, so it can act as nothing more than an FYI between friends.
