Power new dating sites
Plus, having the heart icon displayed at the top will increase more traffic and spark curiosity about this new feature.
Facebook Dating has first been publicly tested in Colombia. Since Facebook is such a big company itself, if Facebook Dating hits the ground running, it is expected for the company to earn loads of money by monetizing this feature.
First and foremost, we need to address the question everyone is likely to ask. Instead, it is a feature embedded in the Facebook app itself.
The feature will be available on mobile only via the social network's main i OS and Android apps for now.
Breaking the glass ceiling yet again, Facebook will launch its newest dating feature called Facebook Dating.
Although some people are nervous since both functions are available in just one app, the developers squash those fears by separating the two accounts--profile-wise and inbox-wise.
From the initial screenshots circulating around the web, the heart icon for this will be pinned at the upper right of your profile tab.
Since the creators are aware themselves that not everyone signs up on Facebook to find dates, having this feature to be an option rather than mandatory will not alienate the website's segmented targets.
The reason behind separating your Facebook account from your Dating account is to ensure that joining the dating feature is completely intentional for the user's part.
By doing so, this cultivates a space where people would go beyond the virtual world and actually meet personally in the future.
Once Facebook Dating is available on the global market, it is important to know that creating a Facebook account will not automatically register you to the dating feature. Consequently, blocking someone on Dating will not block them automatically on Facebook (but nothing has yet been finalized).
