You can only send text-based messages when chatting for the first time, which Facebook describes as a safety measure.Facebook will use a unique algorithm to match you with potential dates, based on “dating preferences, things in common, and mutual friends.” You will also be able to find romantic interests via shared Groups and Events.For example, if you're attending a concert, you'll be able to "unlock" your profile, so that potential matches who have said they're going to the same show can see it.
And now Tinder, as well as apps like it, will have to compete with Facebook itself—an app everyone is already using.
Zuckerberg, as well as Chris Cox, Facebook’s chief product officer, stressed that the feature is designed to spark meaningful connections—not help you find your next hookup.
But the reality is even Facebook doesn’t know yet how it will be widely used, if at all.
annual developer conference, Mark Zuckerberg announced a new dating service, simply called "Dating," that will exist right within the social network's own app.
It will allow Facebook users to create separate profiles from their main Facebook accounts to pursue romantic connections.
