The Impact of ChatGPT on Social Media and Dating Apps: Ethical Considerations

The recent launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT has led to a surge in the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in social media and dating apps. 

It’s no secret that people have been using AI for years in dating apps like Tinder to automate swiping and messaging. In fact, Tinder itself even uses AI to generate conversation starters for users. But now, with the release of ChatGPT, users are taking it to the next level.

Once a match is made on Tinder, users are employing ChatGPT to generate opening messages based on the interests of their match. These messages are then copied and pasted and sent to the match. And it seems to be working, at least according to TikTok users who have shared their experiences.

One user even used ChatGPT to write a poem for a woman he matched with on Tinder, and she was reportedly thrilled to receive it.

However, the use of ChatGPT and other AI tools in dating apps raises ethical concerns. For example, is it fair to not disclose to a match that your messages are actually AI-generated? And what if both users are using ChatGPT to communicate with each other?

These are questions that will need to be addressed as AI becomes more prevalent in our daily lives.

As one TikTok user put it, “AI just too overpowered.”
