Pinky finger as the opposite of the thumb means"loser;you suck".But it doesn't affect its another meaning as"pinky promise".But pinky promise is often used between kids,close friends or lovers. Btw,if it means bad meaning,you should hold up the pinky finger like the middle finger does;and if it means promise,it needs two pinky finger crossed.Guess you can imagine it:P
Pinky finger means weaker or loser, it's quite different from middle finger insult in US. Also, we call pinky promise 拉钩, it's a informal and unserious promise. It's not inappropriate to pinky promise at all. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinky_swear
