Dating at facebook
If you want to start swapping photos or news articles with a potential match, you’ll need to give them your phone number or switch to another messaging service.
But Facebook Dating will be able to hook into other features on the platform.
In other words, you can expect to find exactly zero swiping.
Facebook enters the dating-service market years after competitors like Tinder and Bumble, but it starts with a huge advantage: Most people already have Facebook accounts.
“It’s all about opting-in and making sure that people are really intentional.”As part of that mentality, Facebook Dating doesn’t have a right-or-left swiping mechanism.
The service was first announced at the annual F8 conference in May this year, and will likely be available in other locations in the future.And while Dating works only on mobile right now, it doesn’t require downloading an additional application to your phone.But in the US at least, younger—and more likely to be single—people say they’re using the social network less.This story was originally published on September 20, 2018.On November 8, Facebook announced that it's rolling out the service in two more countries: Canada and Thailand.
