Dating news release
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.Cox also mentioned a feature called “unlocking,” which will let any user of Facebook’s dating platform make his or her profile visible to other attendees of events or members of groups.From there, messaging takes place in distinct chat threads separate from Facebook Messenger.The social network is also introducing two new major features.The first, called Second Look, allows users to re-review someone they previously said they weren't interested in.You can round out your profile with up to nine total photos or ice-breaker questions provided by Facebook.
On November 8, Facebook announced that it's rolling out the service in two more countries: Canada and Thailand.
The profiles look similar to other mobile-focused dating apps like Tinder and Bumble, with full-page profile photos.
However, Facebook’s take on dating is more community-focused, with integrations for the events and groups you’re a part of on the platform.
In other words, you can expect to find exactly zero swiping.
Facebook enters the dating-service market years after competitors like Tinder and Bumble, but it starts with a huge advantage: Most people already have Facebook accounts.
