Dating through facebook
X The platform is quite similar to apps that already exist in the online dating world, but some features are different.On Thursday, all Facebook users 18 and over will have access to Facebook Dating under their bookmarks section (the three lines) on their homepage, even if you’re not single.And don’t worry, Facebook Dating won’t share your activities to yours or anybody else’s Facebook profile or News Feeds.The dating service will send you suggested matches based “on your preferences, interests, and things you do on Facebook,” but the app won’t try to make a love connection with any of your Facebook friends (or anybody you have blocked), Facebook promises.“We control the type of content [people can send].”Once users fill out a questionnaire, add profile pictures and their preferences, they can search through other potential matches.Instead of swiping, the platform features “Interested” and “Pass” functionalities, and users must choose an aspect of a user’s profile to start a conversation. Matches are suggested based on things you have in common and the site also features an opt-in event and group function that allows users to see singles in these networks.
