Facebook Dating goes live, but only for a limited test run

Facebook Dating public testing now live in Columbia, only inside the Facebook app
Facebook Dating public testing now live
Facebook Dating is a Tinder alternative that does not come with left/right swiping but relies on shared Facebook connections instead. This service uses the data in one's Facebook profile, friends, Group memberships, and so on. The browser version is not available yet, and the mobile apps only work in Columbia for now.

No matter what some people might think about this move, Facebook seems to be taking the last steps before adding a dedicated service/app for dating. Simply called "Facebook Dating," this new time-killer for the users of the notorious social network is only available as a part of the Facebook iOS/Android app for now, without offering the chance to access it via the web browser on a desktop computer/laptop. However, Facebook Dating has barely entered a limited testing stage.

Facebook Dating is now being tested only in Columbia, but its reach will probably expand in the weeks to come. Instead of using Tinder-like swiping gestures to like/dislike a person, Facebook Dating uses the Hinge approach which involves asking questions and starting conversations based on a certain element in a person's profile. However, Facebook integrates this dating component with Groups and Events.

For now, Facebook Dating is free and has no embedded ads or paid premium features. If you are 18 or older and happen to be in the area currently included in the test, maybe you can give it a try an share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
