“Last year, while swiping through Tinder, I matched with a young lady whom I’ll call Emily. After a polite exchange, we made plans to meet up and swapped phone numbers, intending to plan a date over text. If you’ve never used Tinder, the app, in a welcome gesture towards privacy, will never reveal its users’ last names. So you can imagine my surprise when, later that evening, I logged onto Facebook and saw that Emily was the first suggestion in my list of “People You May Know,” her last name and job title — both hidden on Tinder, the former by design the latter by choice — plainly visible."
