You Can Now Show Off Your Instagram Pics On Tinder

As if the rigmarole of choosing six suitably-charming-yet-not-sleazy profile photos weren't complex enough, Tinder is set to add another layer of digital pretence to its ego-enhancing experience.

Announced on its blog, Tinder has integrated Instagram into its profile system, allowing users to call in a stream of their heavily-filtered, life bragging moments, adding a new visual "lifestyle" aspect to its service. 

An oft-requested addition (it does away with the need of including your Instagram profile handle), the new tool will pull in a grid of your Instagram pictures to sit below your profile and mutual friends details. While Tinder won't post anything to your Instagram profile, the integration won't allow you to curate which of the Instagram pictures it pulls in - meaning you might want to think twice before snapping that mildly interesting chicken salad you made at the weekend. 

Rather than attempting to convey our thinly-veiled cynicism any further, you can gain an impression of how Tinder envisions the new function working in the sickly-sweet video below. Try your best not to swipe left...
