06 May, 2018, 16:39
In the annual two-day event where developers came together to explore the future of technology, Facebook highlighted a number of tools and initiatives that the company will be working and one of the features included dating service. Seems like it's meant to be the best of both worlds from online dating and Tinder/Bumble-style apps.

Facebook dating will most likely be a free service. Additionally, Facebook also says that "the more active you are in the communities around you, the more opportunities you'll have to meet awesome people".

Zuckerberg said the new dating features will be optional. The new feature was announced by Facebook's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg.
It was only a matter of time.
The app will find potential matches "based on dating preferences, things in common, and mutual friends", and users can search for others based on the groups they're a part of and events they're interested in. According to a video NBC News shared from the F8 conference featuring Facebook Chief Product Officer Chris Cox, just like with other online dating sites, you would create a dating profile.
As much as Facebook may want us to believe this is a well-intentioned move, to not fear that Facebook would be keeping tabs on the users of the dating app would be naive.
As the conference took place so soon after of the Cambridge Analytica scandal that revealed millions of Facebook users' data had been breached, Zuckerberg assured the dating app had been designed "with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning".
