Dating service single site

Facebook begins publicly testing its online-dating product, called Dating, in Colombia today.The service was first announced at the annual F8 conference in May this year, and will likely be available in other locations in the future.While many dating apps have relied on Facebook data for years—like to show you when a potential match has mutual friends—they’ve never been able to leverage everything.That dependence may also make them vulnerable as the social giant enters their territory, which is a weakness some companies appear to have been preparing for.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 can round out your profile with up to nine total photos or ice-breaker questions provided by Facebook.

The first, called Second Look, allows users to re-review someone they previously said they weren't interested in.It’s not yet clear whether Dating would be enough to lure them back to the social site preferred by their parents.As Facebook announced in May, users will create separate profiles just for the Dating service.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.
