Hello Mi Fans!!
What's up guys!! Hope you're all fine. Today I'm back with intresting news specially for Singaporean fans. Are you ready
Facebook launched dating service in Singapore and 13 countries on 1st May 2019. Facebook already launched dating service in five countries last year.
How To Use:-
It is housed within the existing Facebook mobile app. Users have to create a separate profile and will be matched only with other users who have opted in. They will not be matched with their friends on Facebook and can choose if they wish to be matched with friends of friends. No swiping at all, too. Facebook ensured that users will have to tap on the profiles of potential matches and actually explore their curated photos and bio. If you like any of the elements on the profile — say, an interesting photo, or an answer to a preset question — you can message the user about it. To prevent harassment and annoyingly needy comments, you can only message each match once, and the conversation can only continue if the match replies. As a safety measure, only text-based messages allowed when chatting, so no images, URLs and videos are allowed.
How It Works:-
Where other popular dating apps like Tinder and Bumble make a game out of looking for dates, Facebook Dating’s Technical Program Manager Charmaine Hung stressed that Facebook’s approach is much different. For one, Facebook Dating wants to encourage long-lasting relationships instead of hookups. But as for how successful Facebook Dating has been to stave off one night stands, Hung was coy about it, stating that Facebook doesn’t have the exact information. The social media giant wasn’t willing to disclose how many people are currently using the service either. The dating service isn’t even a standalone app. Facebook Dating is a dedicated feature that lives within the Facebook app itself, but one that builds an independent dating profile separate from your main Facebook account. Activities on Facebook Dating are never shared onto Facebook profiles, and your Facebook friends won’t be able to see what your dating profile says
Finding Love In An Algorithmic Place-
What’s interesting here is that these matches are based on user preferences, common interests and things you do on Facebook, on top of finding potential paramours who’re in similar Facebook groups and events. This, Hung says, adds real-life value to the service — you could match with someone who’s also going to a Toro Y Moi show and make a date of it.
Safety In Numbers:-
Facebook seems to be going all out in showcasing why and how it’s the safest way to date online, complete with policies that’ll protect the privacy of its users. Facebook users with past community violations won’t even be able to access Facebook Dating, while the stringent one-strike policy permanently prevents blocked users from accessing the dating platform. On top of having the ability to include or omit mutual friends in the pool of suggested matches, users can also report or block someone at any point should they feel uncomfortable. After user feedback that women want to feel safe on dates, Facebook Dating also has a feature that lets users share their locations live with friends and family
One thing that Facebook had been highly excited about is the introduction of a new Facebook Dating feature called “Secret Crush”, which we prefer to call Thirsting Your Friends. It would enable users to explore potential romantic relationships within their own friends list, and how it works is that they can select up to nine of their personal Facebook connections to express interest in. if the person you’re crushin’ on also adds you to their Secret Crush list, it’ll match you lovebirds up and get you into a chatroom to… profess your love, if you want. Facebook Dating users or not — will know that you’ve selected them to be a Secret Crush.
The service is also being launched in countries Malaysia, Vietnam, Brazil and Chile. "Currently, there are more than 200 million people who list themselves as single on Facebook. And this as an incredible opportunity to connect people should they choose to explore meaningful relationships,"
Only users' first name and age are ported over from their main Facebook profiles. Facebook Dating requires users to view prospective dates' profiles before tapping "not interested". Other features include the option to be matched with users who are going to the same event or belong to the same Facebook group. The service is currently free.
"Especially for free services, companies could change the terms and conditions with a certain amount of notice given. So what is the case now might not be so in the future."
