UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The creation of Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, boosts its services and becomes versatile by integrating a platform to look for love like dating sites. Available in America and Asia, functionality will only be available to Europeans in 2020.
The social network enriches its services and, besides the friendship, proposes from now on to find the love thanks to its new Facebook Dating. One year after testing began in Colombia, the service was launched this September 5th in the United States.
More than 200 million singles
According to the idea of the developers of the application, this service “will make it easier to find love through what you love and will help you build relationships through what unites you, including common interests, events and groups”.
“More than 200 million people define themselves on Facebook as single . We see it as an incredible opportunity to continue helping people build relationships,” said project manager for Facebook Dating Nathan Sharp explaining the origin of this idea.
In which countries?
For now, the application is only available to people in twenty countries in America and Asia: the United States, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Vietnam, Guyana , Laos, Canada, Colombia, Malaysia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Singapore, Suriname, Thailand, Uruguay, the Philippines, Chile and Ecuador. Europeans will be able to try and find their soulmate with Facebook starting in 2020.
How does it work?
The profile on the dating site and the main profile of the social network work separately. However, Facebook is based on the profile of the user to propose potential partners, likely to please him, also present on this service. Being in direct relationship with Instagram, the feature allows to share its publications and stories from both social networks in parallel.
After the software makes a proposal, it is up to the users to react. “If anyone likes you, you can comment on his profile, like to meet him,” says the publication.
In addition, it is possible to select a person from their friends list using the Secret Crush function. If the feeling is reciprocal, there is a chance to build a relationship without looking too far.
