Is Facebook Going To Be The Next Tinder?

Beyond creating new competition for popular dating apps like Tinder, Hinge and Bumble, Facebook's move will pose a test for them because they have largely come to rely on asking their users to login with Facebook credentials.

Zuckerberg was speaking at his firm's annual F8 developers conference in San Jose, California. It is no coincidence that Tuesday's prototype profile was aged 36, or that Zuckerberg promised that "this is going to be for building real, long-term relationships". Experts have stated that it is not surprising that Facebook is releasing a dating app.

Because weeks after Mark Zuckerberg testified in front of congress over the company's data privacy scandal, he announced that the titanous social media platform will take a crack at online dating! This feature will enable you to see the websites and apps that send us information when you use them, delete this information from your account, and turn off our ability to store it associated with your account going forward.

According to Facebook, "potential matches will be recommended based on dating preferences, things in common, and mutual friends".

US economic growth stronger than expected
That was the slowest pace since the second quarter of 2013 and followed the fourth quarter's robust 4.0 percent growth rate. The initial reading indicates the US economy expanded at a 2.3% annual pace in the first quarter of 2018.

Due to the recent scandal, people are anxious about privacy but the CEO personally told the crowd at the press conference that they built the whole system from the ground up while keeping security in mind.

The online social network is always on the hunt for new ways to keep users engaged, and offering a way for people who want to date to connect is just another tool a the company's disposal.

Facebook's closely-watched developer conference comes as the giant faces intense global scrutiny over the mass harvesting of personal data by Cambridge Analytica, a British political consultancy that worked for Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign.

"I believe that we need to design technology that helps bring people closer together", Zuckerberg said.

How does the new Facebook dating app work?

Second, they should also be more aggressive on the defensive front, removing the burden of reporting hate speech from the user and instead placing it on themselves. The company said, "If you clear your history or use the new setting, we'll remove identifying information so a history of the websites and apps you've used won't be associated with your account". This can be a great opportunity for Facebook to act as a cupid between two people.

"We're flattered that Facebook is coming into our space", Ginsberg said. With a dating service, Facebook will know who you're seeing, how often you date, and the type of people you're most interested in.

Users of the Facebook dating site will also have the option to discover matches via interests in Groups or Events.

If finding a match on a matrimony site is step one towards marital bliss, then stalking them on Facebook is the second and more elaborate and the most inevitable follow-up. Facebook is launching its own dating service some time this year so you'll soon have a new way to find Mr. or Mrs.
