And there are actually more disadvantages of linking a dating app to your social media account than you might think.
First, you may not have a social media account at all.
The amount of notifications you get may overwhelm you, but it's still an app worth trying.
This is one of the more creative dating apps out there, and for some, it might be even better than Tinder.
Of people surveyed (and as always, I grill friends, casual drinking companions, randoms within close bar proximity, former hook ups and your mailman), their reasonings behind the Instagram-add fell into two camps: those who did it for the followers, and those who did it for transparency.
The crew who told me they did it for the followers said they noticed a modest jump.
They're the only ones who can start a conversation.
For example, you can answer to someone who says, “How about we go skating together?
Regardless of the reason you don't want to link your dating app to your Facebook account, there are many Tinder competitors out there that you can use instead.
