How to activate Facebook dating seems to be the question on the lips of every person new to the Facebook dating platform. And if you are one of these persons you have just about nothing to worry about. In this post, I will be sharing with you everything you need to know about activating the Facebook dating feature.
How to Activate Facebook Dating
Of course, the feature, the Facebook dating app is available for everyone to use. But there are some terms and conditions that need to be met before reaping the full benefits of the platform. And once these terms and conditions have been met you will still have to activate the feature before you can start making use of it.
Still on the rollout, to more regions, the Facebook dating app and feature is one of the best features recently released by Facebook. Well, this is what I think personally. But there are still some persons who think Facebook could have actually done better. They actually think that most of the things Facebook introduced with its dating tool have been around in other dating platforms and apps.
Facebook brought a lot of new features and never been seen options with its own dating tool. And this is one of the reasons why I love the feature. Veteran features like the popular right and left swipe was done away with for good amongst many other features. But that is another article for another day. In this post, I will be guiding users and readers on how to successfully activate Facebook dating.
What You Need To Do To Activate Facebook Dating
Do you actually need to activate Facebook dating? Well for one, the feature doesn’t just start working for you all because you have a Facebook account. You will have to cross some T’s and dot some I’s before you can start making use of it.
First, you will need to be a registered account holder on the platform to make use of the Facebook dating app. You also need to be in a region with access to the feature. Lest I forget. The Facebook dating feature is still not yet available to all regions with access to Facebook. So to therefore make use of this feature you will need to be in one of the regions with access to Facebook dating.
You must be 18 years and older to make use of Facebook dating. And lastly, you must have the updated version of the Facebook mobile app downloaded and installed on your mobile device. For the time being Facebook dating cannot be accessed on the web version of Facebook via desktops and computers.
Steps To Activate Facebook Dating
Now that you have learned of everything you need to have in place to activate Facebook dating, follow the steps below;
- Open the updated Facebook app on your mobile device. Make sure you are logged in to your account on it.
- Tap the hamburger icon on the Facebook app page.
- Next, scroll down and tap the dating option/icon.
- You will have to follow the prompts to set up your dating profile.
That’s it. After you have shared your location and chosen a display photo, the rest of your profile will be generated using various pieces of information from your Facebook account.
