Facebook dating exists in the Facebook app, but to use the dating app you have to create a separate profile. Only your name and age will be the carried information. Based on your location, preferences, and all the factors, this will present to you your potential matches. It will suggest matches for you. These matches will be mostly based on the preferences you expressed while creating your profile and your Facebook activity.
This product is only available for users age 18 and above. Facebook will add a separate and new tab in the Facebook mobile app for people. People who want to access this dating mode on their social media will be able to create a profile that will be separate from their main Facebook profile. This dating profile will help you meet your potential romantic partners. These partners can be among your friends or friends of friends or completely outside of your network.
You are not allowed to see your Facebook friends in this app. But, you can! There is a special feature on Facebook Dating named ‘Secret Crush’. This feature is used to let you express your interest in up to nine Facebook friends and Instagram followers.
