Facebook Dating, The New Way To Date
Facebook replaced Myspace for the younger generation, and with Facebook slowly being taken out with other apps like Instagram and Snapchat, it vamped up its game. Facebook is following suit by coming out with its dating tools. Facebook released it to other countries in 2018 and just released it in the U.S., Facebook Dating.
According to PhoneArena Facebook Dating is different from your regular Facebook profile, but you can use pictures and information from Facebook on FaceBook Dating.
Unlike other dating apps that have you log in with Facebook so you can see potential matches within your friend’s circle, Facebook Dating does not. Facebook wants to make sure your privacy is intake and only wants people to know about you on their app by you telling them on your own. Facebook Dating app targets other people outside your friend list.
Facebook Dating allows you to see likes, comments, and messages without having to wait and see if the other person likes you back. There are no restrictions, and you don’t have to pay. This is one of the best features of the app because the majority of dating apps wants you to pay to see messages and who likes you, but Facebook is sticking to their free platform.
Facebook Dating Secret Crush will allow you to add nine people from your personal Facebook or Instagram(if you link it) to the Secret Crush list. Once you add people to the list, they get a notification about someone having a crush. If anyone on that list who is also using Facebook Dating puts you on their Secret Crush list as well, you both will be matched. Why keep it a secret if you can find love in a friend.
Overall, Facebook is following in the dating footsteps and want you to find love as well, so “Safety, security, and privacy are at the forefront of this product,” according to Facebook.
