According to CNN, Facebook has launched its new, free dating service for the U.S. It's called Facebook Dating.
I'm tired of this single life, sign me up!
Facebook Dating, which was announced last year, has already launched in 19 countries and is set to launch in Europe in 2020 according to Yahoo. It will allow users to link their Facebook and Instagram posts to a separate dating profile. In other words, you better up your selfie game if you’re looking for love. It launched in the US this week.
CNN reported that the feature allows anyone with a Facebook account, who is 18 or older, to set up a dating profile from within the Facebook mobile app.
Facebook Dating allows you to match with friends of friends and/or people who are not in your friend circle.
In fact, Fox Business mentioned that there’s also a “secret crush” feature that allows people to connect if they both secretly feel the same way about each other.
Whoa, now that can be interesting, right?
If safety is your concern don’t worry, it also offers a safety feature. According to Yahoo, users can block others and prevent them from sending any messages. It was mentioned that users have the capability to share the location of an upcoming date or live location with a friend on the Messenger platform, so your whereabouts can be tracked.
“If you are interested in someone, you can comment directly on their profile or tap on the like button to let them know. If you aren’t interested, you can pass on them.” Facebook stated in its announcement.
To end it with a bang, Mark Zuckerberg mentioned that this is intended for "real, long-term relationships, not just hookups."
Maybe it'll work? However, the early reviews seem to suggest it's not the best dating app so far.
