    A feud between dating site Tinder and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation was settled on Thursday after the dating site agreed to add links to sexually transmitted disease testing locations, NBC News reported.

    The battle between the Los Angeles based non-profit group and the operator of a popular dating app began last fall leading sexual health advocacy group put up billboards and advertisements in Los Angeles and New York, associating Tinder with sexually transmitted diseases such as Chlamydia and gonorrhea.

    Tinder sent a "cease and desist" letter to the group after the billboards were erected. Now that Tinder is adding the STD testing locator to its application, the group is removing its billboards and advertisements mentioning the software.
