Facebook dating service begins testing internally

Facebook Dating

Guess you'll just have to make do with Tinder, Bumble, OKCupid, Happn, Grindr, Hinge, and the thousands of other dating apps out there in the meantime.

Facebook announced the dating product at its F8 developer conference in the U.S. in May.

This product is for US Facebook employees who have opted-in to dogfooding Facebook's new dating product.

According to a report in The Verge on Friday, an independent app researcher Jane Manchun Wong found evidence of the dating feature testing and posted it on Twitter.

Steven Seagal named Russian special envoy to US
For more than a decade Seagal, who according to his own website is 66, has been a regular visitor to Russian Federation . Seagan received Russian citizenship in 2016 and was personally handed his Russian passport by President Vladimir Putin .

A Facebook representative confirmed testing has kicked off, saying, "We are testing Facebook Dating internally (as we regularly do with new features), but we don't have anything more to share right now".

'The goal for this dogfooding is to test the end-to-end product experience for bugs and confusing user interface, ' the terms and conditions state. "This is not meant for dating your co-workers", read a screenshot. Dogfooding this product is completely voluntary and has no impact on your environment.

From Wong's photos, it looks like the app will let you prevent your current Facebook friends from seeing your dating profile, thus avoiding potential embarrassment. Instead of the traditional blue, it uses a soft, rosy red, with purple illustrations - perhaps an attempt to clearly differentiate it from the social network. We will purge the dummy data prior to public launch. Once you enable the Dating feature, it will not show up in your News Feed for everyone to see, you'll simply start seeing others using it.

He promised a service that would focus on building long-term relationships and 'it's not just about hookups'.
