Facebook launches new DATING app

FACEBOOK is launching a new dating app.

The social media giant announced it has started testing a new version of Facebook Dating.




At the moment it’s only employees at Mark Zuckerberg’s firm that can use the cupid service.
Mobile code researcher Jane Manchun Wong shared images of the sign-up pages over the weekend – and it's got people excited.
Instead of being a stand-alone app to directly compete with Tinder like many predicted, Facebook’s foray into offering a dating service will be an added feature to appear alongside other Facebook categories like Marketplace.
The design looks more like a traditional dating website rather than a place to swipe through hundreds of potential romancers.

The company looks to be going for a more mature vibe, designed to cater to those looking for a more serious relationship rather than a quick hook-up.
When signing up, users are given a number of gender options including trans-woman, trans-man and non-binary.
If you opt in to Facebook Dating you’ll be able to browse potential matches based on all the info Facebook knows about you.
Once you activate it, only other people who have also turned it on will be able to see you in the pool of potential partners and anything that goes in inside Dating won’t be shared on your news feed so you can go about firing off your best pick-up lines without fear.
You will be able to choose if friends of friends can see you or not, if you want an added level of privacy.

According to Ms Wong, Facebook is also working on something called “Conversation Starter” to help users break the ice.
Just like other popular dating apps and services, if two people express interest in each other they can then text over Messenger or WhatsApp, which is also owned by Facebook.
However they reportedly won’t be able to send photos – at least not initially.
One excited user replied to the new pictures: "I can't wait to use this. It look like it's for mature relationships."
According to TechCrunch, Facebook is considering a limit on how many people you can express interest in so you can’t just spam everyone with salacious overtures.
It’s expected you will be able to block someone on Dating which won’t block them on regular Facebook.
The service is currently being used by Facebook employees who are testing a beta version of the app — something known in Silicon Valley parlance as dogfooding wherein employees road-test new products before they enter the wild.

Facebook said it was launching the app at a conference in may.
It caused shares in Tinder’s parent company to drop by 20%.
At the time, Zuckerberg said the dating feature wouldn’t suggest matches between friends, but would show which other single people were attending events near the user.
