Facebook’s new dating feature could break apps like Tinder
The dating app market has been led in recent years by Tinder. In an attempt to counter this dominance, social network giant Facebook recently introduced a new feature, known as Facebook Dating, it is a strong competitor to enter this market now.
Tinder has been one of the leading apps for those who want to meet new people for some time. Thanks to the evaluation of the different people proposed, it is possible to have an opinion and the start of a two-way conversation.
In an attempt to counter the domination of Tinder, the social network giant Facebook presented yesterday at its F8 conference a new feature that will be available on its social network.
Yes, as we said above, we are talking about Facebook Dating, a new space within the giant of the social network Facebook that will allow, like on competing platforms, to meet new people and start a conversation with someone who shares the same tastes or interests.
Although this platform is accessible by the traditional account, it will have a profile, groups, events and an independent messaging system. To use it, you will need to activate this feature and fill out the profile with name, photo, likes and interests. This profile will be visible to other users who have this feature active, as long as they are not on the user’s friend list.
To choose the matches, the algorithm of the social network giant Facebook will analyze the profile, common likes and mutual friends, as well as other variables that were not known. There is also the possibility to create or join groups and events in order to reach a greater number of people in a certain type of interests or themes.
Like in Tinder, once there is a match between two people, more information will automatically be shared between them and a chat channel will be opened between them.
This feature will be tested later this year and will be available soon to all users looking to meet new people.
