If this is true with you then you have been missing out on a whole lot. The Facebook dating app is one of the recent features on the platform although launched some years back.
The Dating Facebook App
Facebook dating is a separate space created on the Facebook platform where users can find love and romantic relationships. Facebook has always been used as a dating platform or a place to meet new friends. But with the Facebook dating feature, Facebook is simply making something that has always been there official. And also adding some really tasty features and perks to it.
How Facebook Dating Works
Facebook dating will work and function like most online dating platforms that you know about. But with this new dating tool by Facebook comes the introduction of new features, something that has never been seen in the dating world before. There is no standalone app for this dating tool. But rather users will have to access it via their main Facebook apps and accounts. Surprised! Well, more to come.
The traditional right and left swiping will not be featured in the Facebook dating tool. Facebook is trying something new. The left and right-swiping feature is one feature that is similar to most dating platforms. But Facebook is bringing a twist to the game and users all over the world are excited about this.
To start a conversation with a user on the platform, you will have to like their posts or profile directly or comment on them. And that’s it! Potential dates on the platform will be suggested to you by Facebook via similar likes and activities.
People around your circle or your friend’s on Facebook that has opted to make use of the feature will not be suggested to you. But rather Facebook will suggest users that are not in your circle or those that you are not familiar with as potential dates.
Your Facebook profile will be different from your dating profile on the platform. And if you are eligible to make use of the dating feature on Facebook you will have to set up a dating profile which is for free. The service and everything in between are free and you won’t have to pay extra fees to get access to advanced features.
