Facebook Takes On Tinder By Playing Cupid

Is set to become the biggest match-making service on the planet.

 

Not just your mum, relatives, and neighbours, now even Facebook wants to help you find the right match. At the F8 conference, Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook would soon introduce a dating feature.
This move makes sense for the social media giant, as Tinder have been using Facebook information for years. Unlike Tinder though, Facebook's dating service is meant for finding "real, long-term relationships".


 
Don't worry about nosy friends, as Facebook enables users to create a separate dating profile. it is an opt-in feature that requires your persmission to go live. The recommendations are based on preferences, common interests, and mutual friends. Facebook's dating feature is expected to use 'pass' and 'interested' buttons instead Tinder's left and right swipe.
