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