Dating app Tinder adds STD testing locator, ending feud with non-profit

By Anjali Athavaley NEW YORK (Reuters) – A feud between the operator of popular “hook-up” software and a leading sexual health advocacy group was settled on Thursday after the dating site agreed to add links to sexually transmitted disease testing locations. The battle between dating site Tinder and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation stretches back to last fall when the Los Angeles based non-profit group put up billboards and advertisements in Los Angeles and New York associating Tinder with sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia and gonorrhea. Tinder, which is part of Match Group Inc, owned by IAC/InterActiveCorp, sent a “cease and desist” letter to the group after the billboards were erected.
