Facebook launches a dating app of its own


Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has made an announcement last week that the social media giant is to launch the brand new dating app of its own. The app is part of a few updates and novelties coming our way that were announced during F8, the company’s annual developers conference in San Jose, California. Zuckerberg wants to make one thing clear: he has Facebook’s users’ best interests in mind, because hundreds millions of Facebook users state thei9r relationship status as single. The CEO said countless couples have met on Facebook had thanked him over the years, so he thought that maybe it is possible to unite hearts by means of Facebook. The app, an opt-in feature, would match single users with strangers, and not Facebook friends. No shenanigans, though. Zuckerberg said the feature would focus on “long-term relationships” and not hook-ups. The new app, which should be rolled out “soon,” will take into account privacy issues. “We have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning,” he assured. The dating app profile is to be separated from the general user profile and other users will not be able to see the app’s profile if they are not on the app as well.
