Facebook Dating is finally launching in the US for everyone after spending almost an entire year in a limited testing stage. Also available in other 19 countries across South America and Asia, Facebook Dating is expected to hit Europe by early 2020. Obviously, the Dating profile is separate from the main Facebook profile.

Facebook users who were trying to use the social network as a dating website can finally create a Facebook Dating profile and try their luck on a dedicated platform. After almost a year since the start of the first public limited testing run, Facebook Dating is now launching in the US.

According to the official press release, Instagram posts can be integrated directly into Facebook Dating profiles, Instagram followers can be added to the Secret Crush lists, and — by the end of the year — those interested will be able to add Facebook and Instagram Stories to their Dating profile as well.

Facebook Dating profiles are separated from the main Facebook profiles and can only be created by those who are 18 years of age or older and have downloaded that latest version of the Facebook app for their handsets. The service does not require swiping left or right since all Dating users can post comments and like other user profiles. All the Dating activity stays in Facebook Dating — at least until proven otherwise, of course.

Right now, Facebook Dating is available in the US and the following 19 other countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Laos, Malaysia, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, the Philippines, Singapore, Suriname, Thailand, Uruguay, and Vietnam. European Facebook users should be able to dive in by early 2020.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
