After launching a dating feature in Colombia, Facebook is now rolling it out to Canada and Thailand adding several new features. Now it is possible to view the list of potential matches they said no to and pause their search if they no longer want to match.
But whether this platform more focused on long-term relationships or hooking up? Or how Facebook will compete with other dating apps? Here is everything you need to know about Facebook Dating.
What is Facebook Dating?
In May 2018, on the Facebook F8 developer conference, they announced about launching a new feature aimed at dating and meaningful relationships.
According to Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, there are 200 million people on Facebook who list themselves as single and this feature will help them to find their significant other and forge long-termed relationships
Anyone who is 18 years old can use Facebook Dating. There is no need to download a separate app to use it. Currently, this feature is restricted to Columbia, Canada, and Thailand, but soon it will be rolled out to the whole world.
How does it work?
First, you create a separate Facebook Dating account filling it with additional information (height, job, religion, interests, dating preferences). Also, you need to add several photos and answer some icebreaker questions from Facebook. It is the funniest part as when people match they can discuss their responses instead of boring “Hi, how are you doing?”
Using the information, you’ve provided, Facebook Dating finds your match. You can set to only match with people who live in the vicinity, fit into a specific age group or have common friends. Also, you can choose a potential match with similar interests through Facebook Groups or Events. For it, you need to unlock the needed event. When Facebook Dating shows potential apps, you can click on the profile if you like a person or tap “Not Interested.”
Facebook Dating is not standalone software. It works within the Facebook app (currently this feature is not available through the Facebook site). But you don’t need to worry that your Facebook friends will see the information on your dating profile. Everything you do on Facebook Dating will not be shown in your primary account. Furthermore, any message you send or receive will be kept in a separate folder, away from the Facebook Messenger. Also, you won’t see your Facebook friends or people you’ve blocked as potential matches.
How much does Facebook Dating cost?
Facebook Dating is absolutely free to use unless you use some third-party in-site applications.
Who uses Facebook dating app?
Everybody who is above the age of 18 can use Facebook Dating feature.

Facebook Dating seems to be an excellent tool for those who want to find their beloved one. But unfortunately, now Facebook Dating is limited to Colombia, Canada, and Thailand. Only when the app will be spread all over the world, we can tell how efficient it is.
