Facebook plans to launch its own dating feature within its flagship app, rather than creating a standalone one.
Though it isn’t quite ready to launch, Facebook is making a clear statement that it's looking to enter Tinder territory with its own Facebook dating feature.
The foray into romance seems to be geared more towards users wanting to find a partner as opposed to something more casual. We’ll see.
The onboarding samples unearthed by analysts seem to show a thorough process that will include a great deal of privacy control, and the inclusion of non-binary, transgender, and orientation options.
Limit to the lust
Details have surfaced that Facebook may put a limit on how many partners a user can express interest towards.
There won’t be a paid subscription model but users will have to be 18+ and live in the US, which will likely expand to the rest of North America and beyond if tests prove positive.
It's interesting that Facebook isn’t going with a standalone app with all the flash and pop of its competitors, which could mean it's after a more mature crowd. Let the experimentation begin.
