Facebook Dating was in the news for quite a while; and now they have finally made their launch in the United States!
Everyone ends up going on Facebook to find out about a certain person’s relationship status no matter what your age is. Well, the company has officially made another means to make your search easier and here is everything you need to know about it.
Facebook Dating Finally Launched in The US!
Facebook’s brand-new dating product is today launching to all in the U.S., promising to leverage the company’s deep insight into people’s personal data to deliver better matches than rival dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, Match and others.
Facebook Dating is free and contains no ads or in-app purchases. It gives users ages 18 and up access to a suite of features designed to help them find a meaningful relationship. Plenty of them will be familiar to anyone with experience on other dating apps, but a few options take unique advantage of Facebook’s biggest asset—its extensive cache of data on you and all your friends.
More Insight –
Facebook Dating lives within the existing Facebook app, but to use it you need to set up a separate profile. The only information carried over is your name and age. The service will present you with potential matches based on your location, indicated preferences, and other factors. You can also choose to match with people who attend the same Facebook events or are part of the same Facebook groups. One thing it won’t show you are your existing Facebook friends—that option is turned off by default.
Basically you won’t see your Facebook friends in the app unless you use its “secret crush” feature; which lets you express interest in up to nine Facebook friends (or Instagram followers). If you both like each other, you’ll get a notification letting you know.
By the end of the year, Facebook says it will also allow you to share Instagram or Facebook Stories. They won’t be Dating-specific Stories, but the same ones you already upload for your friends or followers; they will also still erase after 24 hours. The social network isn’t the first to have the idea: Tinder announced it would begin integrating Snapchat Stories in April.
