If you were thinking about finding a partner for this weekend, it is likely that you tried to access Tinder to meet boys or girls in your area. And we say tried because in the last hours the users have found a failure of Tinder to synchronize with Facebook . For what is this?
During the last hours the application of appointments caused that the users were involved in an endless cycle of errors of login and an erroneous operation of which numerous clients of Tinder have complained in the social networks. However, the problem is on Facebook, and not in the service to find a partner.

The origin of failure of Tinder to synchronize with Facebook we find it in the changes in Facebook restrictions on third-party applications and terms of service. This is the new strategy that the social network is adopting after the controversy in which it has been involved by the appearance of data that Cambridge Analytica has in its power with origin in the social network, affecting almost a hundred million users.
Facebook has declared that the failure of the application is due to “Part of the changes we announced today, and we are working with Tinder to address this problem” . These new privacy measures, which affect more applications than Tinder, comes as a response to the constant criticism that the company is suffering in the last hours regarding the handling of user data. That is why from now on Facebook it will no longer allow applications to request access to personal information.
Although we doubt that this is the end of the problem of Facebook and its processing of data, for the moment this has begun to generate failures in applications like the one mentioned.
In spite of everything, the boys of the app to link they have immediately set to work to solve the failure of Tinder to synchronize with Facebook . If you have tried to access the app and the error message with Facebook permissions has appeared, all you have to do is update the application from Google Play Store or App Store.
The company launched a new version of its application in the early morning that eliminates the problem of synchronization with Facebook and allows users to continue looking for a partner as he did until a few hours ago.
