Here is dating
It’s these sorts of features that really stand to differentiate Facebook Dating from competitors.By utilizing the trove of data it already has about users, Facebook has the ability to become a powerful player in the online dating space.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.Facebook restricts potential matches to people located less than 100 kilometers away (there will be a different metric-system equivalent when the product rolls out in the US).Like other dating apps, you can also choose only to match with people who live nearby, have children, share the same religion, or fit into a specific age or height bracket.“We’re trying to connect people that are open to getting to know each other in the future,” says Nathan Sharp, a product manager at Facebook.
To do so, you’ll need to “unlock” each event or group manually; by default users won’t be able to search for a missed connection unless the other person opts-in to being discovered.
The only information ported over is your age and first name; you will need to manually fill out additional required information including your verified location, gender, and the gender(s) of the people you’re interested in matching with.
You can also specify your height, religion, job title, where you work, where you went to school, and whether you have children.
(Paid Tinder users are similarly able to undo their last left swipe.) The second feature allows users to pause their Facebook Dating profile if, say, they want to take a break from the service, or are in an exclusive relationship and no longer looking to meet other people.
