You can now judge people on Tinder by their Instagram photos

Swipe-heavy hook-up app Tinder is rolling out a new update that integrates Instagram, so you can be judgemental with more than a few Facebook pictures and likes to go on.

Hooking Tinder up with Instagram will display your most recent 34 pictures. Viewers can click through and see your whole profile. If that’s private, the app gives you the option to grant access to Tinder alone, though that slightly defeats the point of having a locked account in the first place.

There is also a new ‘common connections’ feature which shows how connected you are on Facebook – whether you share a friend or two separate friends who happen to know each other. That could potentially help you avoid the embarrassment of swiping right on someone who knows your ex.

All your Facebook interests will now show up on your profile too, which could be good or bad depending on how recently you bothered to update them.

Though Tinder recently introduced paid features, the additions in today’s update are available to all users. If your Instagram account presents an expertly curated window into your world, that’s probably great news. If it’s just full of pictures of meals and your cat, it might not be.
