Facebook testing dating feature, 'Create' button

Facebook Dating

In a bid to take on mobile dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, Facebook has begun testing its dating project internally with employees. "Facebook is internally testing Facebook Dating", she said.

Facebook dating feature will allow you to create a dating profile that is separate from your Facebook profile.

A couple of months ago Facebook announced at its F8 developer conference that it was developing a dating app.

Employees in the American headquarters in Mountain View, California who have opted in for the company's internal testing programme were sent links to sign up last week. The goal for this dogfooding is to test the end-to-end product experience for bugs and confusing UI.

Vintage plane's crash in Switzerland kills all 20 people on board
Twenty people died after a vintage World War II aircraft crashed into a Swiss mountainside, police said on Sunday (Aug 5). The 20 Minutes newspaper quoted a witness who was on the mountainside at the time of the crash.

Right now, some of Facebook's staff in the United States are putting the app through its paces, though it's mainly to spot bugs and problems rather than set up any office romances, Facebook says. "This is not meant for dating your coworkers", the screenshot read. "I can't go past the signup screen because they are not activating all non-employee Dating profiles because, well, it's 'pre-launch'".

Another discovery made by Wong is that Facebook is apparently testing a dating feature called "Conversation Starters", which will help break the ice with your matches. We will purge the dummy data prior to public launch.

In clearly separating users' dating profiles from their existing friend circles, the company appears to be trying to get ahead of the issue.

"This is going to be for building real, long-term relationships - not just for hookups", CEO Mark Zuckerberg said when it was announced. Also, you'll be able to choose if you want the friends of your friends to see you as well.
