Internet dating service single
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.
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.
The social network is also introducing two new major features.
The first, called Second Look, allows users to re-review someone they previously said they weren't interested in.
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.
On November 8, Facebook announced that it's rolling out the service in two more countries: Canada and Thailand.All events and groups are fair game; users will have the ability to unlock that Taylor Swift concert from 2012 and the housewarming party they’re attending next week.One important note: group and event organizers have no control over whether members or attendees choose to date.For example, the organizer of an Alcoholics Anonymous group, or someone planning an event at a church, can’t turn the dating feature off.“The ethos there is that if people want to date, it shouldn’t be in the hands of another person,” says Sharp.
