Facebook Is Testing Its Dating Service. Here’s How It’s Different From Tinder
Facebook dating service will be test of user trust in platform
Facebook Dating is a digital dating product in development at Facebook. Facebook Dating is a feature within Facebook's main app rather than a separate app release. Facebook users create a separate dating profile. After indicating interest in another profile, the service lets users contact each other.
On September 5th, Facebook announced it is entering the online dating world. With its new service, called Facebook Dating, the social media site is now going up against a host of dating app giants, including Tinder , Bumble, Grindr, and Hinge. Facebook Dating, available to Facebook users aged 18 and older, can currently be accessed through the Facebook mobile app. Users must opt in and create a totally different profile than their current Facebook one. According to Vox , Facebook Dating does not show your Facebook friends, and it also allows you to remove friends of friends from potential matches in order to make things a bit less awkward.
Facebook Dating makes it easier to find love through what you like — helping you start meaningful relationships through things you have in common, like interests, events and groups. It takes the work out of creating a dating profile and gives you a more authentic look at who someone is. Finding a romantic partner is deeply personal, which is why we built Dating to be safe, inclusive and opt-in. Safety, security and privacy are at the forefront of this product.
