Dating on mobile in usa Naughty hookup chat rooms
You will never see people you are friends with on Facebook as potential matches in Facebook Dating.
Instead, you will only see friends of friends and people you have no connection to you at all.
After dealing with a major breach of user privacy in the first few months of 2018, Facebook made an unexpected announcement in May: The platform would delve into one of the most personal parts of someone’s life — dating.
While relationships have been an intrinsic part of Facebook since the early days — before there was Insta-official, there was Facebook official — the timing of the announcement seemed unusual.
Unless you’re in search of a vacation hook-up, you probably want to keep seeing potential matches in your home zip code, rather than the one where you’re currently located.
Facebook Dating offers a solution: It will not automatically update your location in the background, so you will continue seeing matches from your home zip code.
“We’ve seen from almost the beginning that people have been using Facebook for dating, just in roundabout ways,” Nathan Sharp, a product manager for Facebook Dating told Refinery29.
“It seemed like an artificial barrier that we didn’t need to put in place,” Sharp says.
The only information carried over from your main Facebook profile is your first name and age.
It is also entirely opt-in — just because you’re on Facebook doesn’t mean you need to be on Facebook Dating.
If you so choose, you can opt out of seeing friends of friends as well.
Facebook Dating is not reinventing the online dating wheel: You’ll see “cards” for each person with their photo, name, and other facts, as well as answers to typical dating questions such as “what’s your perfect day?
Even though it's still within Facebook, Dating operates as a separate entity to ensure it doesn’t interfere with the sharing someone is already doing with their family and friends.
