It takes two dating service
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.“It’s all about opting-in and making sure that people are really intentional.”As part of that mentality, Facebook Dating doesn’t have a right-or-left swiping mechanism.To sort through potential matches, you'll need to tap “Not Interested.” Facebook Dating users won’t be able to start a conversation by simply saying “Hey.” Just like the dating app Hinge, users will instead need to respond directly to one of a potential date’s nine photos or questions, like “Was that taken in Morocco? ”Facebook Dating messages will live in their own inbox separate from Facebook Messenger, and you won’t be able to send links, photos, or payments for security reasons.
As Facebook announced in May, users will create separate profiles just for the Dating service.Facebook begins publicly testing its online-dating product, called Dating, in Colombia today.The service was first announced at the annual F8 conference in May this year, and will likely be available in other locations in the future.For now, users aged 18 and older in Colombia will be able to create dating profiles and, once those reach a critical mass, find some matches.WIRED got to preview an early version of the service, and it looks promising—especially for users looking for meaningful long-term relationships rather than hookups.
You won’t see anyone you’re already friends with on Facebook, nor will you see people you’ve blocked.
