Feeling the love: Man City hook up with Tinder for global dalliance

Struggling to get dates with pictures? Tinder's giving videos a go

Tinder is the go-to dating app for millions of users across the globe.

When users open the Tinder app, they are asked to sign in via Facebook and led to a dialog box asking for additional permissions.

Or so it would seem to the hordes of Tinder users who took to Twitter today to complain that they were locked out of their accounts - squarely placing the blame on Facebook in the process. Pressing "Ask me" - the only available option - asked the user to log into Facebook, starting the whole cycle over again.

Starting soon, Tinder's going to be embracing video by allowing users to upload two second clips of themselves to their dating profiles. The social giant has made wholesale changes to how it handles data since it was revealed that political data firm Cambridge Analytica exploited the personal information of 87 million users.

We've reached out to Tinder and Facebook and will update this story when we hear back.

More news: Blac Chyna Speaks Out After Alleged Six Flags Fight On Easter

Facebook's CTO announced a slew of new privacy measures on Wednesday afternoon as a response to the ongoing criticism the social media company has faced regarding its handling of user data. No option is now available to make Loops straight from the Tinder app.

While Tinder and Facebook have publicly stated they are working on resolving the issue, the incident does bring up larger implications about other Facebook-connected apps that could be affected in the wake of the privacy setting changes.

To register for Tinder, users must their profiles to a Facebook account for verification and profile details. While this helped individuals find friends, Facebook said businesses that had phone or email information on customers were able to collect profile information this way.

An error message comes up every time when a user tries to log into the app and while the message is titled as Facebook Permissions, it states that users need to give more Facebook permissions to create or use a Tinder account. For example, Facebook has said it will remove developers' access to people's data if the person has not used the app in three months.
