Dating website introduction title
For example, you can choose to match with people who attend the same events or who are a part of the same Facebook groups.
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.
For example, the organizer of an Alcoholics Anonymous group, or someone planning an event at a church, can’t turn the dating feature off.
“The ethos there is that if people want to date, it shouldn’t be in the hands of another person,” says Sharp.
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.
You won’t see anyone you’re already friends with on Facebook, nor will you see people you’ve blocked.
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.
It’s not yet clear whether Dating would be enough to lure them back to the social site preferred by their parents.
As Facebook announced in May, users will create separate profiles just for the Dating service.
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.
