On November 8, Facebook announced that it's rolling out the service in two more countries: Canada and Thailand.
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.
The product relies on information from Foursquare, rather than Facebook.
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.
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.
