Talking tech since 2003

Facebook went down. And then it came back up. It happens to almost every website.

For some, that wasn’t the worst thing to happen on the Internet today.

A bit after Facebook came back up, I noticed some people tweeting that their Tinder matches had disappeared. So I set up a TweetDeck column to match any mentions of this. Turns out, it’s an issue affecting quite a number of users.

Here’s a sampling of people grieving over their now-clean Tinder slates.

At this point, we don’t know if matches will be restored or if all these users will be forced to start anew.

We’ll update as soon as we learn more.


According to the @Tinder Twitter account, users should now be able to get their matches back by logging out of the app and logging back in again.
