Facebook Dating Review – With enough time, any social media site can turn into a dating app. When people have a platform to connect with others, they can’t help but share their true feelings. There are numerous dating apps available, but who hasn’t been tempted to message anyone on LinkedIn, Snapchat, Twitter, or, yes, Facebook? Facebook Dating aims to close the divide between the two cultures. It’s a dating app first and foremost, but it also makes good use of the social features offered by its parent company, Facebook. It’s also absolutely free. If you want to find love without the fear of Zuckerberg looking over your shoulder, we suggest paying for one of our Editors’ Choice choices, Match or Tinder.

Facebook Dating Review

Getting Started With Facebook Dating

Many dating apps allow you to sign up with your Facebook credentials. On the social media website, Facebook Dating also exists. It is not a stand-alone program. Instead, it is an optional feature of Facebook’s latest Android and iOS mobile applications. I conducted my research on an iPhone 11. There is no desktop edition available at the moment.

Converting your Facebook profile to a dating profile immediately poses privacy issues. The European Union forced Facebook to delay the service’s launch so that regulators could review security measures. Who can blame them, given Facebook’s history of privacy blunders, from the Cambridge Analytica scandal to settling lawsuits with civil rights groups over microtargeted ads?

Facebook, on the other hand, says that your Facebook Dating information is kept separate from the rest of your Facebook information. I braced myself for the embarrassment of running into a close friend looking for love or unwittingly revealing my (test) relationship status to my relatives. Fortunately, every profile I came across was completely new to me. Unpleasant conditions were avoided.

Furthermore, Facebook Dating does not require any personal details from you; all that is needed is your physical presence. To succeed, dating apps need a large, active community of singles and love seekers. Facebook already has a massive user base, which Facebook Dating aims to leverage. Facebook Dating would never run out of potential matches if even a small portion of the Facebook community converts.

Since Facebook Dating is already Facebook, creating your profile with your current Facebook information and Instagram photos is a breeze. The app might already know basic information about you, such as where you live, where you went to school, and where you work. You can alter your responses after experiencing reality. Don’t be concerned about your regular Facebook information changing. Even so, the ability to skip a few steps is useful. The downside is that, unlike other dating apps, it is difficult to remain anonymous on this one. Your name is taken from your Facebook profile and cannot be changed purely for dating purposes. Others will find this inconvenient, although others may find it dangerous.

Facebook Dating might already be aware of the genders you’re looking for, whether it’s men, women, or everyone. You may define more detailed preferences when designing your profile, such as age range, whether or not you want children, distance, education level, height, spoken language, and religion. The only other dating-specific data to plug in are responses to personality questions such as “the best thing I can cook is…” or “the song that always gets me on the dance floor is…”

Interface and Profiles

Facebook Dating Review – Facebook Dating has a similar interface to Facebook. It’s a new innovation of the Facebook mobile app. You can reach the Facebook Dating section by pressing the heart-shaped button on the overflow menu in the bottom-right corner of the screen, which also takes you to other parts of Facebook within the app. All is a little hazy, and it’s far too easy to end up on your newsfeed when you thought you were swiping through exciting dates.

Aside from the larger issues with the Facebook interface, using Facebook Dating is close to using any other high-quality modern dating app. Profile photos dominate the screen, and you can answer yes or no in Tinder-style by tapping the big X or the big heart. With Second Look, you can return to profiles you’ve rejected.

Tap on a profile to see a more detailed portrait of your object of affection. The level of detail will remind you of Match. Further down, you’ll find more photos, a summary of their profile, answers to personality questions, and even a selection from their Instagram feed. Then you can confidently determine whether to swipe left or right. There is no swiping here, just button pressing, however, the idiom stands.

For a new viewing experience, you can swipe through an interactive feed of Facebook Stories on the home screen. Tap them to see curated collections of photos and videos from future matches.

Once you’ve found a match, you can start messaging each other. When compared to regular Messenger, Facebook Dating’s messaging capabilities are purposefully limited. There is no way to send links, money, pictures, or videos. This is done for security purposes and to give the impression that Facebook Dating is safe from the rest of the internet. Besides, text and GIFs are everything you need for cute communication. The only difference is that you can use Messenger to tell a protective friend about your upcoming date.

Extra Features

Some dating apps, including eharmony, are prohibitively expensive for free users. Others, such as OkCupid, don’t mind if you don’t pay, even if the option is available. Facebook Dating, on the other hand, is completely free unless you see your personal data as currency.

Fortunately, Facebook Dating does not use the absence of a fee to justify a lack of features. Aside from detailed profiles, the app offers more search options than Facebook alone. Here you will find people who belong to the same Facebook groups as you or who attended the same Facebook events as you. Granted, this is where you are most likely to run into people you know. I didn’t run into any friends, but I did run into some friends of friends who were dangerously close. Nonetheless, this is a brilliant way to engage with someone you already have common interests with.

After all, you might want to start dating your mates. That you’ve been looking for the right purpose your entire life. The reasoning is Facebook Dating’s Secret Crush feature. In this section, you can mark up to nine Facebook friends or Instagram followers as romantically involved. Nobody will be aware of what you’re doing. If your unrequited love enters Facebook Dating and adds you as their Secret Crush, you’ll both be notified, and you can start talking about how amazing it is to finally share your true feelings out loud. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can use the app to notify your friends about Facebook Dating and hope they bite.

Social Distancing With Facebook Dating

Facebook Dating Review – As the world continues to shelter in a position to combat the COVID-19 outbreak, digital dating features have become increasingly relevant to dating apps. Facebook Dating does not have any virtual dating functionality. There is no way to video chat directly in the app, and your matches are limited to those in your immediate vicinity, despite the fact that you can extend the distance to 240 miles. Other dating apps link people from all over the world as pen pals in quarantine.

Anyone you meet on Facebook Dating, on the other hand, is a Facebook user by default. If all is going well, you and your match can easily expand your contact options by switching to Messenger, which includes video chat if both of you want it. Tuned is a new experimental app developed by Facebook for couples in quarantine.

Digital dating features are incorporated straight into other dating apps. Bumble, eharmony, Match, and Plenty of Fish all offer video chat. Hinge users must use a separate service for video calls, however, they can express mutual interest in meeting in person.

Like Me

Facebook Dating ReviewThe value of a dating app can be determined by subjective social  – factors rather than technical features. As a piece of software, we have few complaints about Facebook Dating. It offers free rich profiles and premium browsing through using other Facebook features.

On the other hand, Facebook culture has a reputation for everything from objectifying college students to disseminating racial conspiracy memes. Even if your own feed is well-curated, we can’t blame you if your reaction to dating through a forum like that is decidedly negative. Aside from privacy concerns, it’s also just better to have none of your online activities revolve around the same thing. Even if you believe Facebook Dating when it says your data isn’t shared (a big if), the whole thing sounds a little shady.

If you want to digitally hang out with friends and family on the most popular social network, keep using Facebook; it’s a good service. If you want something a little more intimate, our Editors’ Choice dating apps, Match and Tinder, are a great place to start.

The Bottom Line                    

If you can get past the thought of sharing even more of your life (and data) with Facebook, Facebook Dating is a good option that takes advantage of the social media giant’s vast ecosystem. Facebook Dating Review
