Tinder, the hugely successfully dating app, will soon be a party game for the whole family.

Just in time for the holidays, Tinder comes to Apple TV, which the company is hoping will make for a new Christmas tradition: Helping your sad child with their sad dating life.

In a press release, Tinder announced their excitement for making Tinder a part of family bonding time. For some reason Tinder is really invested in the idea of the family gathering around the TV and deciding who you hook up with next. In a press release, they pitch a scenario:

“No phones at the dinner table? No problem. Now you can spot Swipe Right potential from across the room. Need a second opinion before you Super Like? Good news: the cousins from Omaha just rolled in. Plus, why swipe alone when you can let Aunt Donna have a say? She’s known you since you were two; she’s watched you grow. If she says you should Swipe Right on that nice girl in the penguin costume, you Swipe Right on that nice girl in the penguin costume. Seriously man, show Aunt Donna some respect.”

They are really concerned with Aunt Donna, considering “she’s known you since you were two; she’s watched you grow.” This is very gross.

The instructions stay on brand:

  1. Go to the App Store on your Apple TV and download Tinder.
  2. Follow the instructions on screen to log in.
  3. Start swiping! With Tinder on Apple TV, you can: Click the trackpad to view more details about a profile Swipe Left, Swipe Right and Super Like by Swiping Up Shake the remote to Rewind your swipe if you're a Tinder Plus subscriber.
  4. When you're done swiping, sign out and give your friends (or sister) a chance to swipe.”

Yeah, let your sister have a turn. Enjoy Tinder with your sister, Aunt Donna, and the rest of your family because that’s not weird at all.

Anyway, Tinder is coming to Apple TV with a new remote so you can blankly swipe left or right and hope that someone writes you back. Only now, your family can help you choose who you hook up with. How did we ever get by without having Tinder to gross us out?

They have a whole host of videos of the family enjoying Tinder together — again, this is such a strange ad campaign. You can check them out here, if you want to get lost in the saga that is this family using Tinder together.

As if Über’s problems with sexual contact in their cars weren’t bad enough, now they’re politely asking their passengers to stop being so creepy.

QZ points out that, since it’s release, many people were using Über Pool as a place hook up. They write, “Pundits called ride-sharing cars the 'four-wheeled yentas,' 'the new Tinder,' and, you know, a way 'to get laid now.' One driver ran a dating game show in his car.” This comes hot off numerous, awful accounts of people complaining about drivers making unwanted sexual advances on passengers, and the company not doing much about it.

The ride-sharing company has updated their Community Guidelines, particularly those using Über Pool, asking passengers to “give riders and drivers personal space”:

We all value our personal space and privacy. It’s OK to chat with other people in the car. But please don’t comment on someone’s appearance or ask whether they are single. As a passenger, if you need to make a phone call, keep your voice down to avoid disturbing your driver or other riders. And don’t touch or flirt with other people in the car. As a reminder, Über has a no sex rule. That’s no sexual conduct between drivers and riders, no matter what.

Whether or not this will actually help Über’s problem with sexual contact is still unknown, but until then, Über would like to remind you that its service is not Tinder, so just use Tinder, you creeps.

So well, this is what it's come to huh? No, not actually; but it's only a matter of time before this laughable commentary on gettin' offended becomes a reality.

“From the color of your Starbucks cup to a lion being shot in Africa, don’t miss your chance to get offended today about an issue you didn’t know existed yesterday!”

Sh*t, indeed.

Facebook is infiltrating your office with the release of a new iOS and Android app called "Work," which will initially only available to a limited number of companies participating the pilot.

The new app isn't exactly the Facebook you are used to. It's an internal social network designed as a communication tool for companies to collaborate on projects without using email.

In other words, it's not for watching cat videos, it's for doing your job.

The new app uses the same interface as the standard Facebook app, but the information is private within your company, and you can create individual groups for specific projects.

Users can create a separate login or link their personal accounts to the professional accounts, but the information posted for work stays in the Work account.

There are no ads and it's free at the moment, but Facebook will most likely charge a subscription fee at some point, according to WSJ.
