Free dating on facebook
But based on Facebook’s history with users’ private information, there’s certainly a possibility that it won’t, so prepare to be embarrassed.
Facebook Dating is a feature within Facebook's main app rather than a separate app release. After indicating interest in another profile, the service lets users contact each other.
You can’t search for mates by interests or other keywords, the way you can with Match. As with Tinder, you have to decide whether or not you like someone before seeing the next match.
Facebook Dating won’t suggest friends as matches, nor will your dating profile show up on your main news feed or be visible to friends.
Users contributed to establishing what the dating site would look like for future users, as it was still in the testing stages.
Facebook stated that if the testing went well, it would become a more prominent part of the existing Facebook application.
The feature is set to expand to 14 new countries, including Australia, Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, Laos, Brazil, Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Uruguay, Guyana, and Suriname.
Facebook won’t let lonely hearts — or creeps — send photos or website links, which could help cut down on unsolicited photos.
Although many features resemble what other matchmaking services offer, Facebook’s version promises to be different, just as Tinder brought swiping and Bumble brought female-first messaging.
Your Facebook Dating profile will be separate from your main one, but it will let you tap your network of friends to identify “secret crushes.” Facebook Dating, a mobile-only service that’s free to use and free of ads, can still help Facebook make money if it keeps people glued to Facebook’s other services longer.
Once two people 'like' each other, they will be able to match and potentially talk to each other.
Facebook Dating first launched in Colombia on September 20, 2018.
Facebook also plans a feature to let people attending the same event make their profiles visible to each other.
