Facebook dating is the new Reviewed updated by the social media giant, to help singles mingle and find love online. The dating feature is meant for singles who are interested in a long-term relationship and not just for only hookups.
People have a lot of questions about the Dating platform, like, “Why does this exist?” and “Who would use this?” My own most pressing question following the release was not the why or who, but rather, has anyone actually used this?
Well yes, a lot of singles have already joined the dating feature some singing its praise, why for others it’s a no, no especially those who might have tried out other advanced dating apps. But everybody with their opinions, in mine it’s not that bad it’s a good dating app with good relationship potential.
Facebook Dating Reviewed
Facebook Dating’s list of features is short, though they are unique and interesting. Most of the app is run like a traditional, casual dating site, but there are four specific features that really stand out to us. The features include; a block setting, on pause which lets you freeze a process of matching, second look chance, and secret crushes.
Facebook Dating is a completely free app to use, but you must have a Facebook account as the feature is within the app and cannot be downloaded separately. Those who are not great at technology might find that Facebook Dating interesting and it’s even easy enough for them to use.
Can your friends see you on Facebook Dating?
Only people who have opted into the dating service can be able to view your dating profile, and it doesn’t show up on your News Feed. Your current friends on Facebook won’t be able to see your dating profile, nor will Facebook ever suggest your friends, friends of friends, or people you’ve blocked as a match for you.
However, there’s a way to add your friends on the dating app without necessarily turning the default setting. By adding them as secret crushes, Facebook has given you the opportunity to add up to 9 of your friends on Facebook as secret crushes.
But only if they are using the dating app and add you back as a secret crush can you start to be matched. And you will still remain friends on Facebook and even if you eventually opt out of the dating service.
